Trees in Old Town

The 25 trees along Hollister Avenue in Old Town Goleta are flourishing! These trees were planted last year as part of the Arbor Week celebrations in 2023. The City received approval from the Public Tree Advisory Commission to plant three species of trees: Ginkgo Biloba, Arbutus Marina “Madrone”, and the Chinese Pistache.

These trees were planted along Hollister Avenue, stretching from Fairview Avenue down to the Highway 217 overpass. Goleta Public Works is responsible for watering the trees, managing weeds, and maintaining planters, while West Coast Arborist is responsible for tree pruning care.

As these 25 new trees continue to grow, they will become an integral part of the landscape, and their presence will serve as a reminder of the community’s commitment to environmental sustainability. They are a part of the 14,000 publicly owned trees that line our streets and parks managed by the Goleta Public Works team.

With the launch of the City’s new Old Town Open For Business campaign, this is the perfect time to take a stroll down Hollister Avenue and support your favorite local shop while checking out the new trees.
