Tree Planting on Pacific Avenue

A successful tree planting took place on a Saturday morning a few weeks ago on Pacific Avenue Rosa Bautista of Tree People and neighbor Stacey Louriabetween Grand View Blvd. and Centinela Avenue. The project was headed up by local resident Stacey Louria with able assistance of the well respected Tree People non-profit organization and volunteers from the neighborhood and from the greater Westside area. Snacks, coffee and water was provided by local Mar Vista vendors.

Twelve Brisbane Box shade trees were planted under the supervision and help of several Tree people staff and volunteers.  This shade tree is an evergreen from Australia known to do well in Southern California because of its drought resistance. It blooms yearly with small white flowers and is known for its beauty and attraction for birds.

Stacey hopes to be able to add at least five more trees when permission and funds are available to cut out concrete near the Grand View end of this block of Pacific. Property owners and neighbors committed to water the trees in the early stages. The Tree people model is to do at least yearly volunteer tree care events to provide the trees a greater guarantee of survival and growth.
