2nd Saturday in September at Benicia High

September 14, 2019

Six volunteers helped out at Benicia High School for Benicia Tree Foundation's 2nd Saturday Tree Care Day in September.  Twenty-five trees throughout the campus that were planted in the last two years were watered, weeded and/or mulched. 

The photo below shows the volunteers standing under a Monterey Pine in the west parking lot where volunteers planted acorns last January to replace several diseased Monterey Pine that were removed two years ago.  Six Coast live oak tree saplings are now growing where the Monterey Pines once stood.  Thanks to today's volunteers, these oak saplings are prepared for the winter rains.

This agreeable group also watered trees next door at the Mary Farmar Elementary School where students planted trees throughout that campus last year.  Our volunteers watered fifteen trees along the school driveway.  The Tree Care Day activities were wrapped up before 11:00 AM.
