Summary

Historically, the Newhall-Division group has done extensive and dramatic work in front yards and in planting street trees around the neighborhood. They returned this year from emeritus status to focus on stewardship of neighborhood trees and to plant two new trees at the corner of Newhall and Thompson. This pair of sweetgums will bring a burst of fall color and ample shade to the corner as they mature. A core group of three neighbors was a welcoming sight on the streets every Thursday evening, and neighborhood children frequently joined in the hard work of beautifying street tree pits, maintaining front yards, and planting new perennials.
