Heritage Trees

The streets of Great Park Neighborhoods® are lined with 10 different species of heritage trees that FivePoint rescued from the former U.S. Marine Corps Air Station El Toro. More than 1,000 heritage trees have been carefully preserved and protected under the watchful eyes of arborists so that we can replant them in the community, minimizing the impact on the environment. The trees are planted in natural formation throughout Great Park Neighborhoods, giving the neighborhoods an immediate look of maturity and providing a shade canopy for the community. By saving and replanting the heritage trees, we are able to carry a key part of the past into the future of Great Park Neighborhoods, rooting the community in a sense of history from Day One.
