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

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.
