Tustin, CA sits in the Los Angeles Metropolitan area, and the people of Tustin know a thing or two about organic greenspace maintenance. On March 13th, 2019, the City of Tustin planted a Canary Island Pine Tree at Centennial Park to celebrate Arbor Day – and their designation for the prestigious Tree City USA award 22 years running. This award recognizes environmental improvement, excellent tree care in the United States, and four city requirements met: a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program, and Arbor Day observance. 17 of Tustin’s community parks are already maintained organically! Thanks to the support of Non Toxic Neighborhoods, Tustin recently voted for all fields to go organic – and now Non Toxic Tustin is working to bring non-toxic pesticides and field maintenance to the rest of the city fields.
