Community “Wish Tree” Planting to be Held in Highland Park as Part of 50-state Documentary Film

The community is invited to participate in the planting of a Wish Tree on York Boulevard tomorrow morning. These arrangements were finalized only last week and we were unable to get announcements into the local press…. so spread the word to locals who love trees!

“Plant a Wish” Tour Visits Los Angeles, Invites Public to Participate on Saturday, April 30th at 10:00am in front of 5663 York Boulevard.

Los Angeles, April 30th –Highland Park residents are invited to join the Urban Forest Collaborative and the nonprofit documentary project “Plant a Wish” in a planting of wishes under two native California Sycamore trees on York Boulevard in Highland Park.

Participants will be invited to place their written wishes under the tree as it is planted, and to participate in the Plant a Wish documentary project, which highlights tree planting efforts around the country.

The Urban Forest Collaborative is working in partnership with Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council, TreePeople, and The Eagle Rock Association in order to plant drought tolerant shade trees along York Boulevard. Additional trees will be planted on York this coming winter. Trees provide economic and environmental benefits to both residents and businesses.

Plant a Wish was founded on Earth Day 2010 by a couple of Hawaii filmmakers who are also avid land stewards. They will be in Los Angeles as a part of their mission to plant native “wish” trees in all 50 states and make a documentary film. This planting event is free to the public, and all are invited to attend, hand-write wishes to be planted underneath the tree, and to participate in this historic event to be filmed for a feature documentary.

The filmmakers have held community tree planting events in approximately 41 states so far, in the northeast, midwest, mid-Atlantic and southern U.S. regions.

See you tomorrow to plant trees– and wishes.
