|California Laurel Cherry Tree|
Trees on any city street enhance the look of the neighborhood while providing shade, oxygen and reduce greenhouse gases. In Los Angeles the Million Trees LA Project is underway to help fight against global warming. Taking the pledge to plant a million trees is the goal and Los Angeles residents that take the pledge can receive up to five trees free of charge per address. As part of the pledge, I received my first tree at during Open-House night at my daughter’s school.
I am the proud owner of the California Laurel Cherry. This tree caught my interest because it is native to California, it grows quickly, it will provide lots of shade it provides and white flowers bloom in the spring. This tree grows to 18 feet or can be trimmed for a privacy hedge. The other fact in its favor is that it stays green all year and doesn't lose its leaves like other trees.
