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 citywide community event on April 20, 2024, at Jerome Park celebrating Earth Day and Arbor Day.  The Me Encanta Santa Ana event, which means I love Santa Ana in Spanish, gave residents an opportunity to help beautify Santa Ana.  The event festivities included a community concert, resource fair, distribution of tree saplings, tree planting at multiple Parks and educational information on trees.

The City of Santa Ana has been proudly designated as a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation for 25 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, help cool your home by reducing your energy costs and provide an overall positive community atmosphere.  For more information about the City of Santa Ana tree program, visit: https://www.santa-ana.org/street-tree-services/
