Project Tree


Project Tree

A longtime dream of Eric Kos of the Alameda Sun is came true this year. The Alameda Sun has funded a tree-planting effort here in Alameda, donating $1,000 to Alameda Backyard Growers (ABG) in 2016-17 to fund a tree-planting effort hereby dubbed “Project Tree.”

Fruit tree recipients were required to:

  1. Live in the City of Alameda
  2. Have an adequate space for the tree planted in the ground (not container)
  3. Live in the home where the tree would be planted
  4. Attend an orientation on the proper care of their tree
  5. Care for the tree

In Phase I, Project Tree volunteers planted a total of 34 new trees in Alameda, including orange, fig, mandarin, apricot, plum and apple trees. Twenty-four families received trees, as well as the Alameda Girls and Boys Club and NEA CLC School.

Stayed tuned for Phase II!
