Volunteers needed for BK tree planting

Approximately 49 trees will be planted along the Atlantic Avenue corridor between Carson Street and Burlinghall on Saturday, April 26, as part of a partnership between the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association (BKBIA), the 2008 class of Leadership Long Beach and the Long Beach Department of Public Works.
“It’s a win-win situation,” said Blair Cohn, BKBIA executive director in a press release. “The tree planting helps complete the BKBIA tree-planting program and contributes to our overall streetscape plan. Leadership Long Beach gets to leave a legacy of the 2008 class and Public Works gets to celebrate Arbor Day and continues to create the urban forest of Long Beach. How can it get any better than that?”
Approximately 100 volunteers are needed to plant the trees, according to Cohn. All tools and supplies will be provided by the Department of Public Works, and food and refreshments will be provided by the BKBIA.
Those interested in participating in the event should contact the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association at (562) 595-0081.
