Seymour said that Earth Landscaping sold the trees — including palo verde, mesquite, desert willow and flowering plum varieties — to the district at cost. “These are all very drought tolerant once established, and they won’t need much water,” said Seymour. He said that the staff also installed 4,000 feet of waterline and was able to purchase 90 percent of the materials locally. — Photo by Laura Austin
