On Wednesday, March 10th, the City of Tustin will celebrate the 25th Consecutive Arbor Day. In honor of this day, the City planted a Quercus Virginiana tree at Laurel Glen Park located at 13301 Myford Road. The planting was done at an earlier date. A video on the planting can be found on the City’s website.
Tustin spent over $914,000 last year to care for the approximately 16,000 trees in Tustin’s urban forest. Additionally, approximately 6,629 trees were trimmed and 137 trees are planted in the City.
The prestigious Tree City USA Award recognizes environmental improvement, higher levels of tree care in Tree City USA communities and has four levels of requirements: a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program, and Arbor Day observance.
