Benicia High School students worked with Benicia Unified School District staff to plant 20 coast live oak seedlings to help buffer the campus from the freeway traffic on I-780. These trees are in addition to 21 trees planted earlier this year in the same area of the campus.
Benicia Tree Foundation and the Benicia Housing Authority jointly sponsored a tree planting project at the Capitol Heights development. 32 shade trees were planted along Riverhill Drive and Bayview Circle. Members of the nearby Heritage Presbyterian Church and residents volunteered to help plant the trees, with the assistance of maintenance staff from the Benicia Housing Authority. The trees were selected to require minimal maintenance and water once established, and were located to protect the bay views enjoyed by some of the residents.
Benicia Tree Foundation sponsored a tree planting event at Benicia State Recreation Area on December 5. 10 tree seedlings were planted at the main picnic area and adjacent to several parking lots. Some of these trees replaced pine trees that were removed due to disease. All trees were grown from locally collected acorns and buckeye fruits. A total of 22 trees have been planted at BSRA in the past two months.
Benicia Tree Foundation is proud to announce that we have planted 479 new trees to develop Benicia's Urban Forest!
