Greening Union City, One Tree at a Time - Union City, CA Patch
Nelson Kirk cares about the future of Union City.
You may not notice it today, in a month, or even in a year. But five decades from now, when the city’s streets are lined with 60-foot to 80-foot tall trees that not only clean but create the air we breathe, the residents of Union City can say “Thank you” to the man who planted the seed.
In December, Kirk, public works supervisor for Union City’s Grounds Division, spearheaded a campaign to plant 100 Cedrus deodara (deodar cedar) trees throughout the city. The four locations were along Alvarado Niles Road, Union City Boulevard, Mission Boulevard and Decoto Road.
