Second community tree planting completes grant

FALLBROOK – In the fall of 2009, Fallbrook’s Save Our Forest organization (SOF), a division of the Fallbrook Land Conservancy, received a grant from the California Releaf Agency for 77 trees to be planted in Fallbrook.

The first round of planting was done in December 2009, as the culmination of Fallbrook High School’s Community Service Week. A large group of students planted 15 trees at the high school, a lasting legacy of trees to provide energy-saving shade and to enhance the beauty of their campus.

The second and final round of tree planting for the grant was held on Feb. 20, 2010, at two downtown Fallbrook locations: the Fallbrook Unified Elementary School District campus, and on Vine Street between Ivy and Hawthorne streets. The remaining 62 trees were planted by 33 SOF volunteers and Girl Scouts from Troop 8283.
