Over 40 trees planted in Jeffrey Fontana Park

On December 11th, the tree planting in the Jeffrey Fontana Park in South San Jose, was very successful. There were about 50 people participating from all over the valley (Cupertino to South San Jose) and all 40 or more CA Native trees were successfully planted.  (See the story in the Almaden Times Weekly)

Dave Poeschel

We all owe a debt of gratitude to David Poeschel  for organizing Phase I of his planting scheme and to Our City Forest for providing the support necessary to get the job done! Dave made our work so much easier by having a power auger pre-dig the holes and we thank you for that Dave! All trees were planted in a couple of hours. These trees will provide a ‘foundation’ for the beautification of the East-end of Fontana Park. Thanks again to all that helped and especially to the MFPA members who braved the cool morning to assist in the plantings.

    Fabulous job with the posting, Sunny. The pictures and summary are great. Many thanks to Dave for initiating this project and to all the volunteers from Our City Parks and the Martin-Fontana Parks Association who helped make this happen.
