New Trees Planted on Mullholand
Plant a Tree In partnership with L.A. City and a new charity, TROOT (troot.org), Julie Nicholson posted on Nextdoor that her daughter recently planted ten new trees. TROOT’s first batch of trees are located along the Mulholland Drive median between Topanga Canyon Blvd. and Canoga Avenue in Woodland Hills. “It’s a great family activity, a lesson in commitment and caring for the planet,” Nicholson wrote on Nextdoor Topanga. “Reconnect with the earth while beautifying the neighborhood.” TROOT’s mission is “To create a positive environmental impact through planting trees, while deepening the roots of Los Angeles communities through our tree adoptions.” If you want to adopt a tree, go to the website, complete the form, pick a tree and commit to watering it. Trees 2, 5, 6, and 9 were available for adoption at press time. Each tree is marked with a number tag matching the map (see website) and needs about 10 gallons of water per week. If you don’t want to adopt, there’s an option to donate water and 5-gallon jugs. (Retrieved from Nextdoor Topanga) LA Conservation Corps Thanks to Julie Nicholson’s post, The Canyon Chronicle rediscovered the LA Conservation Corps (lacorps.org; #lacorpspower), who, in partnership with City Plants (www.cityplants.org), provided the trees. LACC’s mission is to provide at-risk young adults and school-aged youth with opportunities for success through job skills training, education, and work experience with an emphasis on conservation and service projects that benefit the community. It also provides at-risk young adults and school-aged youth with opportunities for success through job skills training, education, and work experience.
