Tree Planting in LVT

After yesterday's citizen forester training, we decided to join a tree planting up in Lake View Terrace in the Northeast Valley to see a citizen forester in action. A teenage girl led it for her Girl Scout troop, planting 25 trees at the Lake View Terrace Recreation Center.

Supported by TreePeople, the morning was a cinch. It began with sign-ins and registration, followed by opening remarks and training. Then groups spread out to plant trees. With tree planting supervisors (volunteers who took training) on hand, trees were easily planted in about 20 minutes each and of course named. We planted two trees and named them Buddy and Ezekiel.

Today is the last day for the planting season, so let LAist tempt you to start thinking about your volunteer time this next Fall.
