I am happy to share that new street trees are coming to the Collins neighborhood!

  

Up to 100 trees will be planted in the neighborhood bounded by:

 

Harding Street — North

La Jara Street — South

Coke Avenue — East

Downey Avenue – West

 

Collins Neighborhood Association and Girl Scout Troop 1353/1363 are committed to help plant, water and care for these trees for their first year. 

 

Come help plant the trees! 

 

Volunteers of all ages are welcome at this event to help plant and water these young trees

 

No experience is needed, we will train you.  

 

 

Can you and/or your organization serve as Water Brigade volunteers to help water the newly planted trees on planting day?

 

Volunteers are needed to help make sure each tree is deep watered with 15 gallons on planting day to help them get off to a good start.          

 

 

Would your group like to provide refreshments for the volunteers?

 

 

Can you and/or your organization assist with watering the trees during their first year?

 

 

  

Housing and Neighborhood Services Bureau staff will deliver all the trees and tools on planting day. 

 

The Port of Long Beach and CAL FIRE have provided funding to plant 10,000 trees in Long Beach neighborhoods through 2022.  Residents, businesses and community groups partner with Housing and Neighborhood Services Bureau to provide volunteers at the tree planting events. 

 

Public Works will survey the neighborhood for tree planting locations and Housing and Neighborhood Services Bureau staff will mail letters to the property owners of all the adjacent sites to notify them that trees will be planted and to provide them with an opportunity to decline them.   

 

Housing and Neighborhood Services Bureau staff will deliver all the trees and tools on planting day. 

 

Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or would like additional information.
