Three native Monterey pine (Pinus radiata D. Don) populations occur along the central coast of California and cover a total area of approximately 5,330 hectares. The goals of this research were 1) to provide a contemporary characterization of the three native populations and 2) to determine which biological and environmental factors were predictive of Monterey pine street tree removal in an urban forest. For the natural forests, forest heath, stand structure and understory plant communities were compared between six stands, four on the Monterey Peninsula and one each at Año Nuevo and Cambria.
