Crescent City, CA; 1/9/09

'A sense of pride' Daily Triplicate - Crescent City,CA,USA In an area known for its giant trees and vast tracts of forested lands, there’s a noticeable lack of arboreal culture in Crescent City.To change this perception and add to the scenic landscape, Crescent City workers are planting 160 trees in and around town.“ It’s Sedrick’s goal to replace the old trees with new and fill the empty wells, but he won’t be able to do that with the 160 trees he has now — which comprise a combination of Monterey cypress, redwood, ginkgo, red maple, and flowering plum and cherry — that are mainly going around the new Harbor Trail parking lot, in Beachfront Park and throughout downtown.
The trees going in the ground this week came from part of a $27,000-plus grant from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection’s urban forestry program.
