entire amount was spent to pay for and plant 316 trees.

Pasadena Beautiful, in collaboration with the Pasadena Community Foundation,
has established the Pasadena Windstorm Tree Fund for the purchase and re-planting
of the trees lost in Pasadena during the devastating windstorm, which struck our
City on November 30 and December 1. Over 800 trees were lost and countless damaged.
Pasadena Community Foundation will match up to $10,000.00 in donations to the fund.
All donations to Pasadena Beautiful Foundation are tax deductible and 100% of every
dollar donated will be used for the sole purpose of re-planting trees.
The City of Pasadena is very pleased and thankful that the two organizations
are working together. Pasadena Beautiful has a 50 year history of working with
the City to plant trees and protect our urban forest.
