PLANTING TREES FOR THE FUTURE

 

 

A park isn’t a park without some shady trees! And after seven years of drought in San Diego County, trees in county parks have weakened and pests are causing them to die.

We’re doing what we can to protect trees and be forward thinking when it comes to ways to save them. More than 450 trees have been removed and 4,000 have been planted in their place.

Watch these volunteers who came together to give new life to our parks.
