South Pasadena has enjoyed the shade, cleaner air, and beauty that trees provide for many decades.  However, years of drought and a wave of new insect and disease infestations are currently devastating Southern California’s trees.  South Pasadena Beautiful is responding by actively supporting the city’s tree drive. 

See the links below for information on Southern California’s tree crisis, South Pasadena’s tree drive, and the best way to care for your trees.  Trees are key to help South Pasadena thrive in a hotter, dryer future, and we can all play a role in planting a caring for our city’s trees.
