    OXNARD, Calif. – The City of Oxnard is updating its free fruit tree program for residents and adding apple, plum, fig and pomegranate trees for consideration by applicants. Avocado and peach trees are also still available.

    Due to concerns regarding a citrus greening disease that has impacted parts of Los Angeles and Orange counties, the City is no longer offering lemon, lime or orange trees as a part of this program. While the disease has not been reported in Ventura County, it is fatal to citrus trees. By planting plum, apple, fig, pomegranate, peach or avocado trees, you eliminate the risk of your new tree potentially being exposed to the citrus greening disease. Approved applicants who previously selected a citrus tree will be contacted with a choice of additional new fruit tree options.

    Since the program’s announcement, the free fruit tree program has generated tremendous interest from residents. However, grant requirements prioritize applicants who reside in neighborhoods that are disproportionately affected by pollution, based upon CalEnviroScreen scores. The City continues to seek applications from the priority neighborhoods of Tierra Vista, Mar Vista, Five Points Northeast, Rose Park, La Colonia and Cabrillo. Communities located outside of the grant’s priority areas will be added to a waitlist and considered if there is a low response from priority neighborhoods. 

    Trees will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Homeowners will be responsible for maintaining the trees per specifications outlined in the agreement form that is required with their application. One tree will be provided per eligible household.

    To review program requirements and to submit an application, visit For questions, please contact the Public Works Department at (805) 385-8280 or [email protected].


    OXNARD, Calif. – La Ciudad de Oxnard está actualizando su programa gratuito de árboles frutales para los residentes y agregando árboles de manzana, ciruela, higo y granada para la consideración por los solicitantes. Los aguacates y duraznos también están disponibles.

    Debido a las preocupaciones con respecto a una enfermedad de enverdecimiento de los cítricos que ha afectado partes de los condados de Los Ángeles y Orange, la Ciudad ya no ofrece limón, lima o naranja como parte de este programa. Si bien la enfermedad no se ha informado en el condado de Ventura, es fatal para los cítricos. Al plantar ciruelos, manzanas, higos, granadas, duraznos o aguacates, elimina el riesgo de que su nuevo árbol se exponga a la enfermedad de enverdecimiento de los cítricos. Los solicitantes aprobados que previamente seleccionaron un árbol de cítricos serán contactados con una selección de nuevas opciones adicionales de árboles frutales.

    Desde el anuncio del programa, el programa gratuito de árboles frutales ha generado un gran interés por parte de los residentes. Sin embargo, los requisitos de subvención dan prioridad a los solicitantes que residen en vecindarios que se ven desproporcionadamente afectados por la contaminación, según los puntajes de CalEnviroScreen. La ciudad continúa buscando solicitudes de los vecindarios prioritarios de Tierra Vista, Mar Vista, Five Points Northeast, Rose Park, La Colonia y Cabrillo. Las comunidades ubicadas fuera de las áreas prioritarias de la subvención se agregarán a una lista de espera y se considerará si hay una baja respuesta de los vecindarios prioritarios.

    Los árboles se proporcionarán por orden de llegada. Los propietarios serán responsables de mantener los árboles según las especificaciones descritas en el formulario de acuerdo a lo que se requiere con su solicitud. Se proporcionará un árbol por hogar elegible.

    Para revisar los requisitos del programa y presentar una solicitud, visite Para preguntas, comuníquese con el Departamento de Public Works al (805) 385-8280 o [email protected].
