Tree Davis, the city of Davis and PG&E will commemorate Arbor Day next month by planting 30 new trees on Claremont Drive behind Nugget Market, 1414 E. Covell Blvd. in East Davis.
On Saturday, May 4, members of Tree Davis, a local organization whose mission is to enhance and expand the urban forest in town, will plant the trees in the place of 18 trees that have grown too large for their current location and become “unsafe and unhealthy.”
PG&E crews will remove the trees before the replanting.
“The trees being removed were planted under high-voltage power lines and pruning to the federal guidelines has created structurally unsound trees, thus creating a hazard for workers and pedestrians, as well as unhealthy trees,” the city said in a news release.
The event will run from 9 a.m. to noon. Tree Davis volunteers also will be on hand to educate the public on “planting the right tree in the right place.” Arbor Day falls on April 26.
