Today mother nature is watering our trees, but this is a rare occurance in LA. One of the first things to be cut in our city's budget is money to water trees. Does that make sense when you think about all the concrete good they do for our environment and health? We have to make sure every new tree initiative had money to water and maintain those trees and that we protect the older species we are so lucky to have. Visit @treepeople_org and @cityplantsla to learn more about protecting and increasing our tree canopy. *** Carob Tree, Ceratonia siliqua - you can recognize these by their shiny, oval pinnate leaves that look like rows of butterflies and their big, long, thick seed pods that look like huge brown peas.
