City Of Long Beach Tree Partnership Tree Planting Program
The 9th District is presented with an opportunity to plant 100 trees throughout the community with the assistance of the Tree Partnership Tree Planting Program Grant from the South Coast Air Quality Management District. Trees planted through this grant must be planted on public property and can be planted either by individuals or neighborhood groups.
We are calling 9th District residents and neighborhood groups to action by recommending locations to plant trees. Here are the requirements when considering your recommendation:
1. All trees must be planted on city-owned, public property such as parkways between streets and sidewalks.
2. All property owners will be required to agree to maintain a planted tree by signing a tree maintenance agreement form prior to the planting of any tree.
3. All trees require a planting permit from the Department of Public Works.
4. Community groups organizing a tree planting will be responsible for accounting and submitting documentation of volunteer hours.
5. Community groups requesting assistance with labor for tree planting should contact our office for more information. The grant only provides funding for trees and planting supplies and does not include funding for tree or concrete removal, establishing new tree wells, etc.
Please contact the 9th District Council at 562-570-6139 or firstname.lastname@example.org with your recommendations.
