Native Trees Planted in Lake Herman Open Space

November 19, 2015

 

 The Benicia Tree Foundation (BTF) recently planted trees in Benicia’s
two largest parks. On October 17, BTF led the planting of
20 coast live oaks and California buckeyes at Benicia State
Recreation Area (SRA) as part of the annual Benicia Arbor
Day event. State Parks hosted the event, working with BTF
volunteers to plant twenty coast live oaks and California
buckeyes just above the San Francisco Bay Trail/Bay Area
Ridge Trail and the Forrest Deaner Native Plant Garden at
Benicia State Recreation Area. BTF and volunteers will
returned to the SRA on December 5 to plant more trees in
this area.
On November 19, BTF hosted the California Conservation Corps at Lake Herman Regional
Park. Together, they were able to plant 79 coast live oaks, 20 valley oaks, and four
California buckeyes east of the paved pathway that connects Lake Herman Regional Park
with Benicia Community Park.
The trees planted in both parks are locally native and drought tolerant, and are expected to
thrive without irrigation once established
