SD Union Tribune: San Diego woman aims to plant 1,000 trees

On July 4 in Standley Park, Janay Kruger launched the Trees 1000 Foundation, a nonprofit that aims to donate and plant 1,000 canopy trees in University City to replace those lost over the past two years to more than 40 construction projects.

The longtime community leader and real estate developer said she was simply tired of waiting for city, county and state leaders to take action on tree replacement in the wake of numerous public construction projects, including the new Mid-Coast Trolley line, several projects at UC San Diego, sewer and water line work, road-widening efforts and a new freeway interchange.
