Valero Tackles Tree Keeper Projects this summer

August 20, 2019

The Benicia Tree Foundation offers the Benicia Tree Keeper Program to Benicia property owners seeking advice on their tree planting projects.  Valero community relations staff approached the Benicia Tree Foundation this summer for advice on how to incorporate trees in landscaping projects at two of their properties in the Benicia Industrial Park.

The first project was along the section of Industrial Way in fron of their office building at 610 Industrial Way.  The Benicia Tree Foundation recommended several  tree species and coordinated the volunteers that planted 21 trees along Industrial Way.  After the success of this initial project, Valero incorporated the tree recommendation from Benicia Tree Foundation in their second project to replace the former lawn in front  of the Valero Refinery administration building at 3400 East Second Street.  The following photos documents these two projects.
