The City of Santa Clarita's
Urban Forestry Division joined local residents in November to plant 15 new
Camphor trees along Arch Street
in Newhall. The City's Extreme Neighborhood Makeover program is designed to
help assist in solving neighborhood beautification and safety issues and
increase community pride.
"The trees are an ideal addition to Newhall, as the
attractive evergreens remove pollutants in the air, attract no pests and are a
cost effective way to add immediate curb appeal," said Council member Marsha
The Extreme Neighborhood Makeover program for Newhall began
with an invitation-only Neighborhood Block Party for all residents of the
nearly 160 homes in the target area. The goal of the event, sponsored by the
City in partnership with the Sheriff's Department, Fire Department, KHTS 1220
and local nonprofit organizations is to help maximize property values
throughout City neighborhoods.
