Oceanside Arbor Day Celebration October 30th
The City of Oceanside will join over 100 fourth grade students from Casita Center and SDG&E to celebrate Arbor Day and plant trees together at Oceanside’s John Landes Park, located at 2855 Cedar Road in the Tri-City neighborhood. The celebration will take place on Tuesday, October 30 between 9:00-10:30 a.m. All are welcome.
Since trees contribute greatly to our quality of life here in Oceanside, we aim to promote their planting and care. The benefits that trees provide are social, communal, environmental, and even economic. The City of Oceanside is dedicated to sustaining a healthy and viable urban forest for generations to come. The Oceanside Public Works Department maintains approximately 85,000 City-owned street and park trees. An engaged urban forestry program is critical to meeting Oceanside’s commitment to climate adaptation, storm water runoff reduction, and water conservation as well.
In 2018, the City of Oceanside was awarded its 10th consecutive award for being a “Tree City USA” by the National Arbor Day Foundation. We’re proud to be a city that makes planting and care of trees a priority.
The City of Oceanside also operates a Street Tree Program. If your street lacks trees next to the street, contact us about requesting a tree. Find out more by calling (760) 435-4500 or visit www.ci.oceanside.ca.us/gov/pw/maintops/median.asp
