Altadena and Eaton Canyon Golf courses will benefit from a $378,000 grant awarded to the County of Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation intended to replace fallen trees in last year's windstroms
The two golf course, along with the county golf course at Marshall Canyon in La Verne, will receive a combined $76,000 for planting new trees.
Several communities along the foothills in San Gabriel Valley were hard hit during windstorms that battered the area in late November, early December. Many residents lost electricity as strong winds brought down power lines.
Other grant awards include $77,000 to the Arboretum Tree Replacement Project, $99,000 to the Arcadia Park Tree Replacement Project, $89,000 to the Bonelli Park and Marshall Canyon Tree Farm Tree Replacement Project and $37,000 to the Santa Anita Golf Course Tree Replacement Project.
The department was one of 18 grant agencies to receive money from the Fifth Supervisorial District Tree Planting Grant Program, which is funded by the Safe Neighborhood Parks Propositions of 1992 and 1996.
