La Cañada is one tree richer

La Cañada Flintridge Mayor Laura Olhasso replaced her gavel for a shovel Thursday, planting a new tree in Glenola Park as part of the annual Arbor Day celebration.

Olhasso was joined by mayor pro tem Don Voss, Los Angeles County Deputy Forester Tamara Hanna, as well as a dozen community leaders, in planting the crape myrtle sapling, which will bloom in August.

La Cañada traditionally celebrates Arbor Day in April, but delayed the event by several months. The city had to get the tree planted before the end of the year in order to retain its status as a Tree City U.S.A.

“I think it is a really great way to celebrate,” Olhasso said.
