LA awarded $1.3 million to better understand how the drought and pests are threatening park trees
from Los Angeles Daily News
Trees have disappeared from some of Los Angeles' parks in recent years, many falling victim to the recent drought and the spread of an invasive beetle that has led to the removal of sycamores and other tree species. But Los Angeles park officials say they lack the tools to fully assess the damage. Park officials now hope that a $1.3 million grant will allow them to build a database of the city's park trees, get started replacing trees that were lost, and conduct an education and awareness campaign.
