80 Trees Planted at
Robert Semple Elementary School

January, 2013 Over two Saturdays volunteers planted 80 new trees around the playing field at Robert Semple Elementary School. We planted Coast Redwoods, Coast Live Oak, Incense Cedar, Canary Island Pine, Crepe Myrtle, Gingko Biloba and Chinese Pistache trees. Several first grade classes helped with the plantings as did teachers, parents, students, the Benicia Youth Commission, Girl Scouts and other community members.

Support for the project was received from California ReLeaf, CalFire, Organic Solutions and Devil Mountain Nursery.
