Orchard Supply Hardware in the Hollywood district has partnered with Beverly Cleary Fernwood campus to provide new trees on the Northeast 33rd Avenue side of the school.
Staff from the shop at 4030 N.E. Halsey St. delivered three Italian cyprus trees and planting soil in time for a campus clean-up before Earth Day, said Lisa McKerlick, a Fernwood parent. She worked with Kathie Tell, the PTA president, to arrange the Orchard donation.
If the city grants permission to dig up more paving, Orchard will provide three additional trees, McKerlick said.
In addition to tree planting, students, parents and community volunteers weeded, cleaned up litter and trimmed shrubs to spruce up the campus.
