Community Turns Out for Free Trees

Free Tree LA

Crowds of people who lost their homes or suffered landscape damage from the Woolsey Fire flocked to Pacific Coast Highway and Heathercliff—to a spot better known as the Christmas Tree Lot—to claim free trees during a giveaway on Saturday, June 1. 

The event, called “FREE TREE LA,” was hosted by Sun Valley-based Your Way Tree Service Inc., a landscape company specializing in tree trimming and planting.

According to KBUU News alerts from the time, the giveaway was so popular it caused a traffic jam on Pacific Coast Highway in the afternoon.

According to organizers, a total of 5,000 trees were shipped to Malibu to be distributed.
