Benicia Tree Foundation held a tree planting in the Community Park on Thursday, October 13th, with the very motivated Cub Scout Pack 108 taking the lead. Pack leader Jeff Conner was there with Gretchen Burgess and many other Cub Scout Parents to support and witness the scouts plant a 24” box Strawberry (Arbutus) Tree near the playground area adjacent to the “Giant Slide.” The Benicia Tree Foundation and Pack 108 are donating the funds to plant the tree and will be recognized with a permanent plaque at the site.
