The first blooms in my spring garden appeared this week. Planted several trees in my yard last year free of cost from the Million Trees LA Iniative , and they are starting to bloom. The Million Trees Iniative is part of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's plan to green up LA and reduce green house gases. Each LA resident may receive up to 7 trees to plant in their yard. The DWP also has a partnership plan with Million Trees LA. You can order free trees from the DWP website as well.
