Trees planted for Earth Day

The Ventura Tree Alliance, the City of Ventura’s Urban Forestry staff and community members teamed up to plant fifteen trees to help shade and beautify Barranca Vista Park for a family-friendly tree planting day on Earth Day, Friday, April 21.

The funds for this event were provided by generous donations from the community: people from all walks of life that see the value of trees and want to take part in cooling the air, providing habitat, reducing water run-off, muting traffic noise and mitigating Co2 emissions.
