Huntington Beach Tree Society



Gratitude for Shipley to Shore Trail Growers – Scouts from Huntington Beach and Westminster spent a Saturday morning in June clearing and planting sage, salvia, Mexican marigolds and verbena along the mid-section of the Shipley to Shore Nature Trail, adjacent to Ellis Avenue. HB Tree Society President Jean Nagy, above left, taught them proper planting techniques to ensure these flowers thrive.

We’ve started a new Shipley to Shore HB Facebook page to provide our friends with regular updates about progress on the nature trail. Please check it out!

Welcome, UCI Pharmacy School students! These volunteers came to the Urban Forest in May to dispense time and energy weeding and planting.

Cherry Blossom Festival goers saw cherry trees in full bloom in HB Central Park March 15-17. Our thanks to the folks who stopped by the HB Tree Society photo and plant booths, helping raise funds for future plantings.

These students with HB High School Key Club did a fantastic job of mulching around the parking lot entrance and boulders of the Shipley Nature Center. The area looks so much better because of all of their hard work. To find more volunteers digging in, click here.

The Huntington Beach Tree Society (HBTS) was incorporated in 1998 as a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) with the purposes of:

  • Planting and maintaining trees
  • Educating the public about the benefits and importance of trees and California friendly plants
  • Enlarging our green environment (another name for plants/trees in cities) for the enjoyment and health of all
  • Increasing habitat for urban wildlife

Exceptional attributes: We are an equal opportunity, all-volunteer organization. Donations do not go to salaries.  We have a donated office and donated use of two trucks. Our dollars go a long way! To date we have purchased and planted more than 7,000 trees and CA-friendly plants residing on the two and a half acres within the Urban Forest’s fenced area, as well as the areas immediately surrounding the forest.
