New trees planted along Pierce Road and more to come

As part of the 62 trees for Menlo Park program and the Pierce Road Sidewalk project, the City partnered with the nonprofit Canopy, to plant over 40 new trees in the Belle Haven neighborhood. On December 19, 2020, Canopy and City staff, along with local volunteers, planted over a dozen trees along Pierce Road.

Trees are a vital part of our urban landscape and provide multiple environmental, health, social and economic benefits for residents, businesses and visitors. They improve air and water quality, provide habitat value, attract tourists and impart a distinct character to our city.

Another tree planting event will take place in the coming months. Trees will be provided at no cost and residents are responsible for watering the trees in front of their homes.

If you are a homeowner or resident of Menlo Park’s Belle Haven neighborhood and are interested in having trees planted, please contact Canopy at 650–964–6110. You can also contact Public Works at 650–330–6780 for additional information.
