50 New Trees on The Boulevard in Little Saigon

50 New Trees on The Boulevard in Little Saigon

Through a collaborative planting project with Viet Voices ,The El Cajon Boulevard Business Improvement Association and Little Saigon Working Group, 50 new trees will be planted on The Boulevard in The Little Saigon Cultural District (El Cajon Boulevard from Highland to Euclid). The trees will be purchased by grant funding secured by Viet Voices and The El Cajon Boulevard Maintenance District will do the sidewalk cuts and maintain the trees. ECBBIA and Viet Vote staff  marked potential locations with City Staff. The sites were evaluated for eligibility and 58 locations were marked for trees. Concrete cuts have been made and phase one will include approximately 50 new trees. Final tree selections are being made to match the Little Saigon Cultural District’s colors of red and yellow.

Studies have shown that shoppers in tree-lined commercial districts report more frequent shopping, longer shopping trips, and willingness to spend 12% more for goods. Healthy trees also mean higher property values (Source).  Learn more about the benefits of trees at People for Trees.
