Melrose Hill Tree Planting

The Melrose Hill Neighborhood Association has completed its impressive Neighborhood Matching Fund project. Not only did the landscape of the CalTrans sound wall by Melrose Hill with 3 California Live Oak trees, 25 Bougainvillea and other wall vines, planting, staking and tying 39 city street trees in two planting Saturdays, they had trees (and energy) left over to plant 19 street trees on Sierra Vista which previously had not a single street tree, 7 street trees near Lemon Grove Park and 9 new street trees in the Melrose Hill Historic District. Special thanks go to Ed and Martha Hunt and Tina Farash.
