Greenkeepers USA kicked off the Life for A Life COVID-19 memorial tree planting on Saturday, April 3, 2021. Early Saturday morning on April 3, our volunteers helped plant our first 12 trees (4 madrone arbutus, 2 dwarf ginkgos, 2 western redbuds, and 4 coast live oaks) at the Paseo Padre entrance of Sabercat Creek Trail. On April 17th, they helped plant 20 trees and will plant 12 on April 24, 2021, our next tree planting date. Our volunteers were trained by UFF (formerly TUFA, the Tri-City Urban Forestry Alliance). We were privileged to have a special appearance of the City of Fremont mayor Lily Mei, as well as the chair of the city’s planning commission, Benjamin Yee.
