The City has received the Circle 3.0 Grant to provide 100 FREE trees to Placentia Residents to plant on their private properties at no cost! Part of the California Urban Forestry Council’s Invest from the Ground Up tree planting program, Circle 3.0 is California’s Initiative to Reduce Carbon and Limit Emissions. The City is excited to partner with West Coast Arborists, Inc. (WCA) and the California Urban Forests Council (CaUFC) to bring this wonderful opportunity to our community. Circle 3.0 is a grant project funded through CalFire with the goal to reduce carbon and greenhouse gas emissions by planting urban trees.
These young trees are to be planted on private property, front or back yard, NOT on the parkway and will be owned and maintained by the resident. Trees are 1 to 5 gallon and will be planted by West Coast Arborists, Inc. starting in March of 2020.
To reserve a tree, simply visit wwww.arborday.org/circle3.0, enter resident information and select a tree species. Tree species available on a first come, first serve basis include: Australian willows, Tipu trees, Fern pines, Turkish pines, and pink trumpet trees. Deadline to reserve a tree is February 20, 2020.
The selected tree will be planted on your property (not in City easement). After you have confirmed your species, please attend the upcoming CA Tree Team Workshop scheduled for Saturday, February 29th from 9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., at the Whitten Community Center to pick up your tree marking flag. Flags will be used to mark the area in your yard where you would like the tree planted.
