On Saturday, April 28, 2018, CityTrees celebrated Arbor Day at Sequoia High School with a well-attended planting and clearing event. With funding from PG&E via a California ReLeaf grant and in partnership with the Sequoia High School administration, Sequoia High School Alumni Association and the Davey Tree Expert Company, CityTrees volunteers planted 8 large trees on the grounds of Sequoia High School. Five more trees were planted by Redwood City's Public Works Department on the street nearby. Prior to the planting, the team also coordinated the removal of dead stumps from the grounds as well.  

Redwood City's Mayor Ian Bain and Mark Camfield from Redwood City's Public Works Department opened the Arbor Day event by unveiling this year's Tree City U.S.A. recognition.

It was a successful event with great fun had by student and community volunteers alike. Please keep an eye out as these new trees grow taller along the fence line of the school property along El Camino and Broadway.
