Due to the drought, the city has turned off the water that kept our medians green. With the rains, the grass will come back, but the fledgling jacaranda trees may not.
According to a local arborist and experts with Northeast Trees, young jacaranda trees need regular watering--at least twice each month--to establish themselves.
We can pay to have the trees watered, and are launching a fundraising drive dedicated to SAVE THE GP JACARANDAS!

Thanks to CD1’s Jose Rodriguez, trees in the medians on San Fernando Road were mulched by LA Conservation Corps and will be watered monthly. The same team agreed to mulch and water the median trees on Eagle Rock Blvd. within CD1.
The GPIA brought this issue to the Council office’s attention and we are pleased to be working together to save our trees.
