Heritage Trees

The streets of Great Park Neighborhoods® are lined with 10 different species of heritage trees rescued from the former U.S. Marine Corps Air Station El Toro. These trees have been replanted throughout the community, giving the neighborhoods a sense of history and maturity.

Each heritage tree weighs approximately 50 tons and is about 50 years old. The Parasol Tree – the namesake of Great Park Neighborhood's newest community, Parasol Park – is our largest tree, weighing 120 tons and rising to 65 feet. This stone pine was too large to be safely moved, so today this stately tree remains exactly where it was planted in 1952.

More than 1,000 trees will be planted throughout the San Francisco communities, benefiting residents and the environment alike. Not only will these trees beautify the landscape, they’ll also absorb greenhouse gasses and help reduce energy usage by shading nearby buildings.

Coast to Cleveland Wildlife Corridor

FivePoint is making a significant investment in the Coast to Cleveland Wildlife Corridor. This vital project will provide safe passage for native animals such as the Grey Fox and Arroyo Toad as they travel between the mountain preserves to the north and the coastal canyons to the south. Once completed, the wildlife corridor will stretch for six miles and connect the Cleveland National Forest to the Orange County coast.

The Coast to Cleveland Wildlife Corridor will also feature plants native to California including approximately 2,000 replanted prickly pear cacti and 800 replanted cholla cacti.

Yosemite Slough

Habitat restoration efforts are currently underway to support native plants and animals, including the restoration of Yosemite Slough, an important slice of wetlands between the San Francisco Shipyard and Candlestick Point. Once completed, this area will be preserved for visitors to experience the natural beauty of the shoreline.

10,000 Acres of Protected Open Space

Plans for Newhall Ranch® provide for protection of more than 10,000 acres of open space, including an uninterrupted High Country area larger than Griffith Park in Los Angeles County and New York's Central Park combined. Funding of an endowment of approximately $12 million to protect and maintain the open space, its wildlife and habitats in perpetuity, is also planned as part of this key environmental initiative.
