LONG BEACH - State funding to plant 605 new trees in Long Beach has been restored after plans were halted last year because of the economic downturn.
The city's Neighborhood Services Bureau got the green light last week to proceed with a state-funded tree planting project that's to be finished this year.
The next tree planting in Long Beach will be at 8:30 a.m. June 20, at the corner of Linden Avenue and Burnett Street. There are five tree plantings left for the project.
