Thought we would share some photos of our first Fall Planting event in October. We set a one day planting record of 42 trees and another 7 trees planted by CREW . In addition, we also planted 5 new beautiful Catalina Ironwood trees to replace the ones that died along Joan Kemper Walkway by the Ojai Art Center on N. Montgomery St.
We have been so excited to partner this fall with some young folks from the Green Valley Project (GVP) to encourage the planting of native oaks helping "re-oak" Ojai! Ojai Trees donated 50 15-gallon native Oaks to be planted around the valley and the members of the GVP launched a campaign to find them all good homes where we helped to plant them. We are even more excited to tell you that we are going to plant over 20 more oak trees, as well as other species of trees, on Saturday, November 13th. It isn't too late to be part of this! As an Ojai Trees volunteer you'll be part of a team of tree planters, get equipment and instruction. We'll assemble at 8 am in the parking lot south of Libbey Park tennis courts. From there we'll caravan or carpool to the planting sites and wrap up by noon.
Covid restrictions will be observed and pre-registration is required.
