Altadena Non-Profit on List of County Tree Grant Recipients

The Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy as well as two county departments, are recipients of grant money meant to replace trees destroyed in last year's windstorms.

An Altadena non-profit, as well as two county departments, are listed as grant receipients from a $1.9 million program meant to benefit cities in the San Gabriel Valley who suffered tree destruction in last year's wind storms.

The Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy is listed as receiving $20,550.31 from the county for tree planting.

In addition, the County Department of Parks and Recreation received $378,000 and County Department of Public Works $200,000.  Both of those departments are likely to plant trees in Altadena.

Using money from those grants has already been under discussion in Altadena - in August the Altadena Town Council discussed the issue, noting it was told that Altadena would be allocated $100,000 for 68 replacement trees and 140 new trees. 

Patch has reached out to the county and to the Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy for details on how the grants will be spent - we will update this story with more information when it becomes available.
