Members of the Daisies Girl Scout Troop No. 45127 assisted City staff in planting four street trees in the sidewalk along Quintana Road in celebration of Earth Day. The City maintenance staff also planted four Monterey cypress trees — two at the Giannini Family Dog Park in Del Mar Park and two in Del Mar’s parking lot, according to a monthly activity report presented at the Public Works Advisory Board May 19.

The City crew dug the holes, installed root barriers and watering tubes in preparation for the Girl Scout’s plantings, and then came back to install tree stakes and bands to help the young trees stay upright in their formative years.

Arbor Day has been celebrated in Morro Bay for decades, and the City is an official ‘Tree City USA.’
