Arbor Day tree planting celebration set for April 27 at Washington Elementary School


For the 15th consecutive year, San Leandro has been named a Tree City U.S.A. community by the national Arbor Day Foundation to honor its commitment to community forestry.

San Leandrans are invited to join the City’s Arbor Day Tree Planting Celebration on April 27 at 4 p.m. at , 250 Dutton Avenue.

San Leandro is also the recipient of a Tree City USA Growth Award for demonstrating progress in its community forestry program through a wide array programs, such as: education and public relations; literature distribution; continuing education for City tree workers; green industry partnerships; collaboration with City engineers and planners for forestry conservation; and planning and management of the City-owned tree inventory.

“This prestigious Growth Award recognizes the City of San Leandro's continuing efforts toward environmental improvement and our commitment to higher levels of tree care as a Tree City USA community,” said . “We take our urban forest responsibility very seriously in San Leandro, and I commend our Public Works Department for all they do to sustain the approximately 20,000 trees owned by the city.”

The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service

What a joke. Well at least we got it without having that stupid "tree ordinance" that Shelia Young wanted to hoist upon us.
