City of Manhattan Beach Polliwog Tree Project


The City of Manhattan Beach’s Urban Forestry program is tentatively beginning its Polliwog Park Tree Project at the end of April (weather permitting). It will involve the necessary removal of seventeen diseased trees to maintain a healthy park canopy and enhance the park’s biodiversity. Concurrently, the City is introducing seventy-eight new trees from eight diverse species, five of which are native. Seventeen diseased trees are set to be removed due to Longhorned Borer Beetle & Pine Pitch Canker infestations, structural damage, and selective thinning.
