Customized Tree Care Days

August 30, 2020

Benicia Tree Foundation has cooperated with various organizations, companies and property owners to customize Tree Care Days that meet their needs.

A Tree Care Day has been scheduled on September 12th to prune trees in the Forrest Deaner Native Plant Botanic Garden at the Benicia State Recreation Area.  To meet COVID-19 regulations, the State Department of Parks and Recreation required a list of pre-approved volunteers.  We have provided the State with a list of volunteers and the tree that will be pruned have been tagged.

Valero has participated in many Tree Care Days in the past and approached us to arrange a Tree Care Day for their employees on September 24th.  The plan is to prune some live oaks growing in the Valero buffer property along East 2nd Street.
