Centennial trees

Local company, celebrating its 100th anniversary, donates three trees to Hearst Elementary science garden

The Hearst Elementary School science garden was gifted three new trees this week.

Workers from the Pleasanton office of The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, upon learning about Hearst's tree planting program, decided the best way to celebrate the company's 100-year anniversary was to give back.

Two red bud trees and one valley oak tree are now taking root in the garden, which is located in the rear of the school's playground, bordering the Bernal property.

Valley Crest Construction and Whiting-Turner employees as well as Hearst faculty all assisted in the planting.
