Housing and Neighborhood Services Bureau staff will deliver all the trees and tools on planting day. 

The Viking Volunteer Program will have a tent set up at the meeting location for LBCC students to check in at.  By signing in at the tent, LBCC students will receive credit.


Contact Derek Oriee @ 562.938.3088 or if you  have any questions.

Please arrive early so you have time to check in at the LBCC tent before heading out to plant.


The Port of Long Beach has provided funding to plant 6,000 trees in Long Beach neighborhoods through 2020.  Businesses and community groups are partnering with Housing and Neighborhood Services Bureau to provide volunteers at the tree planting events.  Justice for Murdered Children is committed to help plant, water and care for these trees for their first year.
