The City of Santa Clarita's Urban Forestry Division joined local residents in November to plant 15 new Camphor trees along Arch Street in Newhall. The City's Extreme Neighborhood Makeover program is designed to help assist in solving neighborhood beautification and safety issues and increase community pride.

"The trees are an ideal addition to Newhall, as the attractive evergreens remove pollutants in the air, attract no pests and are a cost effective way to add immediate curb appeal," said Council member Marsha McLean.

The Extreme Neighborhood Makeover program for Newhall began with an invitation-only Neighborhood Block Party for all residents of the nearly 160 homes in the target area. The goal of the event, sponsored by the City in partnership with the Sheriff's Department, Fire Department, KHTS 1220 and local nonprofit organizations is to help maximize property values throughout City neighborhoods.
