Big effort underway to save small La Cañada fawn hobbled by illegal trap.

People mostly leave the animals alone. So, Newsom was shocked on Sept. 20 to see a months-old fawn near his house hobbling with a trap on its leg. He took photos and contacted a member of the homeowner’s association, who alerted the neighborhood.

L.A.’s first ‘tree officer’ is trying to plant 90,000 trees by 2021.

The ambitious tree-planting project falls under the purview of Rachel Malarich, the city’s forest officer — a job that was just created in August to “oversee the growth of Los Angeles’ urban forest” as part of Garcetti’s Green New Deal. An arborist with more than a decade of experience in urban forestry, Malarich was appointed just days before the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a report that emphasized the role of trees and forests in combatting climate change. The project will grow what’s already the largest urban forest in the country, making what happens in Los Angeles an important model for other cities looking to go green.
