Threats to Monterey pine habitat
The Monterey pine is native to only a handful of spots in the world. Monterey Pine Forest Watch wanted to illustrate how small the area of protected habitat is, how much has been lost to development, and how much more could be lost. Golf course development by the Pebble Beach Company threatened to destroy tens of thousands of trees. MPFW sought to expand protected habitat by annexing adjacent ranches to existing Jack’s Peak County Park.
