OCEANSIDE–The City of Oceanside will join over 100 fourth grade students from Casita Center and SDG&E to celebrate Arbor Day and plant trees together at the city’s John Landes Park on October 30.
2855 Cedar Road in the Tri-City neighborhood.
The celebration will take place between 9:00 to10:30 a.m. at 2855 Cedar Road in the Tri-City neighborhood.
Since trees contribute greatly to quality of life in Oceanside, the city aims to promote their planting and care, city officials say.
The benefits that trees provide are social, communal, environmental, and even economic. The City of Oceanside is dedicated to sustaining a healthy and viable urban forest for generations to come.
The Oceanside Public Works Department maintains approximately 85,000 city-owned street and park trees. An engaged urban forestry program is critical to meeting Oceanside’s commitment to climate adaptation, stormwater runoff reduction, and water conservation as well.
In 2018, the City of Oceanside was awarded its 10th consecutive award for being a “Tree City USA” by the National Arbor Day Foundation.
The city also operates a Street Tree Program. If a street lacks trees next to the street, residents can request a tree.
