The Laguna Beach Garden Club, Laguna Beach Beautification Council, and the City of Laguna have collaborated by planting around the magnificent Melaleuca Tree in Heisler Park. Ruben Flores has been on a mission to save this beautiful tree from the many climbers it has been supporting for too many years. Its limbs are damaged, and the over 50-year-old tree is in danger of being no more. While the plants are growing, please remind any climbers you may see to please resist the temptation of using it as a bench.
