Lodi City Council candidate forum set
The Lodi chapter of American Association of University Women is holding a forum for Lodi City Council candidates on Thursday.
School board candidates will answer questions first followed by City Council candidates. The forum is open to the public and will take place at 7 p.m. at the Hutchins Street Square theater.
Free trees availables
The organization TREE Lodi, the Lodi Improvement Committee and Solutions are offering a free tree program. Residents are invited to apply for a tree.
Applications may be picked up at the Parks and Recreation Department, 125, N. Stockton St.; the Community Development Department, 221, W. Pine St.; the City of Lodi Finance Department, 300 W. Pine St.; and Weigum’s Nursery, 401 N. Ham Lane.
All the trees have been donated for this project to help add to Lodi’s urban forest, said Joyce Harmon, of TREE Lodi.
TREE Lodi will visit the applicant’s site before and after the planting, provide a tree, do a site inspection three years later to check on the condition of the tree and do tree stewardship training and pruning demonstrations. Members will be available to answer questions.
Those who receive a tree must dig the hole and plant the tree and are in charge of caring for it afterward.
Deadline for application is Oct. 27.
For information about the program, contact TREE Lodi at 369-4558 or 334-6668.
