La Mesa is proud to hold the honor of being called Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation for the past 39 years! To continue our efforts, the City will host the 14th Annual Park Appreciation Day at Harry Griffen Park on Saturday, November 9, from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., where 200 trees will be planted. Before the planting begins, we will have free snacks, information booths, opening comments and a tree-planting demonstration. Funding is provided through a grant from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CalFire) Urban and Community Forestry Program.
