Troop 9414 – Girl Scouts with Green Thumbs

Girl Scout troop 9414 spent about 90 min weeding the Triangle Garden in front of Shipley Nature Center, where HB Trees and Mesa View CA Jr. Scholarship students planted Redbuds on CA Arbor Day in March. The girls made a dent in the weed overgrowth there. This picture was taken afterwards, when the kids went over to see the Snowy Egrets nesting in the trees inside Shipley’s.

Arline Pohlman

HB Trees' Arline and Matt Pohlman became active in the forestation of Huntington Central Park in 2023, when they came with their entire family to donate and plant their first tree on the west side of the Urban Forest.

Since then, the couple has planted multiple native Oak trees and plants, and added tree stumps for seating. Simultaneously, they have removed invasive weeds – especially mustard and the highly toxic Caster Bean plant – to create a mini-oasis for visitors.
