To keep our urban forests diverse and healthy, plant California native trees like the coast live oak. Large native trees provide shelter, food, and habitat for native animals; they also make great play areas for children. Plant in the late fall or winter when cool weather will help ensure proper establishment.
Trim trees only when necessary and only when birds are not nesting. It is unlawful to needlessly destroy bird nests. See the Los Angeles Audubon Tree Trimming Guidelines, linked here.
