As part of Metro’s Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project, the Los Angeles Conservation Corps (LACC) is planting new trees in the neighborhoods adjacent to Crenshaw Bl. This effort is being performed in conjunction with the City of Los Angeles as part of Metro’s tree replacement program for trees removed due to construction.
These trees will be planted in the parkway, which is city right-of-way, in front of residents and businesses between the sidewalk and the street curb. The planting of trees will be conducted in phases over various locations in the neighborhoods near Crenshaw Bl. This next phase of tree planting is scheduled to be conducted on 59th St East of Crenshaw Bl and 59th Pl west of Crenshaw Bl.
