The Woodlands Specific Plan and the “butterfly effect”

In that process, we contacted an oil company to find that it had been acquired by a larger conglomerate firm headquartered in New Jersey. Upon contacting that firm, they were surprised to find that their newly acquired assets included 900 acres of coastal property in California. Not too long after, RRM was under contract to prepare the Woodlands Specific Plan. The Woodlands site was virtually covered with mature eucalyptus trees that had been imported and planted over a century ago. The trees had become one of several popular overwintering sites on the Central Coast for Monarch Butterflies. As a result, a significant portion of the eucalyptus grove was preserved as a butterfly preserve.
