Indeed there are some new saplings that have been planted in Skid Row within the last couple of years. I wanted to take this post to document them and give thanks to their planters.
I don’t know who planted all these trees but I appreciate that they did it, especially after learning how difficult it is to do this around here, and also understanding that the conditions for their survival in Skid Row have been challenging up until very recently.
I know that the trees on Alameda St. were planted with help from several committed individuals from the DLANC, the CCEA and the LACC.
If anyone has any further information on these plantings that you would like to share on this blog, please comment.
