Within the Presidio, which is a former military base and now part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, is an incredible piece of art called Wood Line. The installation was created in a gap inside a eucalyptus grove where cypress trees were planted in the 1890s. The cypress trees were outcompeted by the eucalyptus and didn’t make it, so in 2010, British artist Andy Goldsworthy created what is now Wood Line in the space left by the cypress. Wood Line is a beautiful “sinuous flowing line” made out of eucalyptus branches sourced from other Presidio projects that involved tree removal.
