On April 29, 2023, in recognition of National Arbor Day, the City’s Public Works Maintenance Services Division collaborated with multiple City departments and vendors, to host a family-friendly community event in conjunction with the Santa Ana Public Library’s Dia de Los Niños, Dia de Los Libros event. Event festivities included a community resource fair, distribution of 400 tree saplings, and educational tree presentations.
The City of Santa Ana has been proudly designated as a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation for 24 consecutive years for its dedication in maintaining the City’s urban forest of over 50,000 street trees. The City appropriates over $4 million annually on its tree care programs that includes pruning, planting, and providing arborist evaluations of all City street trees.
A healthy urban forest contributes to our community in many ways including adding value to your home and neighborhood, helping cool your home by reducing your energy costs, and providing an overall positive community atmosphere.
