Local University Launches Inaugural Irvine Tree-Planting Event


Stanbridge University volunteers planted over 100 trees, flowers, and wildlife in the City of Irvine.

Irvine, CA, February 18, 2020 --(PR.com)-- Stanbridge University is pleased to announce the planting of 166 trees and native plants at Great Park in Irvine. The event marked the first of its kind for the institution.

Recognizing the need for environmental action in Southern California as rising sea levels threaten coastal properties across the state, Stanbridge University created the Root for Change Tree Planting Initiative with the goal of planting 10,000 trees across the region.

Stanbridge University is a firm believer in planting trees to enhance the environment through water catchment, as leaf canopies help manage rainwater runoff, reducing soil erosion caused by falling rain.

80 Stanbridge student volunteers offered their time on Friday, September 20, 2019, to assist with the planting of 10 California sycamore trees, 5 Chinese elm trees, 86 coast sunflowers, and 65 California sagebrush plants.

As an institution, Stanbridge University looks forward to further partnership with the City of Irvine as Stanbridge seeks to make a positive impact locally and globally for the greater good.

Shadetree Partnership Nursery has partnered with Stanbridge University to provide native plants at no cost for the entire initiative in order to promote community growth. Shadetree Partnership Inc. is a volunteer-based organization that promotes more livable communities through the planting and stewardship of shade trees and other nursery stock.

About Stanbridge: Stanbridge University is an award-winning private institution that offers degrees in nursing and allied health in both Los Angeles and Orange County. Stanbridge University received the 2019 Gold Award for Excellence in Community Service from the California Association of Private Postsecondary Schools (CAPPS).
