ReLeaf Costa Mesa is nearing its goal of planting 2,000 trees by the year 2000. "We really want to make our goal," said Liz Meyer, president of the group. "Now that we're this close, we're all tired but see the end in sight." The pledge was made in 1994, a year after the group was formed. While some members were a bit dubious at first that the goal could be met, a recent $4,594 grant from the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and California ReLeaf has made the goal more realistic.

ReLeaf Costa Mesa is nearing the halfway point of its goal to plant 2,000 trees by 2000. After forming just a few years ago, members expect to plant their 1,000th tree Nov. 22 at Smallwood Park. Fifty trees will be added to the park that day. Spokeswoman Kris Hagen is optimistic the group will plant its 2,000th tree by the turn of the century. "We're going to stick to it," she said. "We have a strong enough group, even though it's small. I think it's going to happen."

ReLeaf Costa Mesa, a nonprofit group that seeks to plant 2,000 trees citywide by 2000, has won a nonvoting position on the city's parks commission. The position, approved this week by the City Council, is compatible with the commission since ReLeaf often collaborates on projects with the Parks, Recreation Facilities and Parkways Commission, officials said. The well-known green thumbs frequently go before the board for permission to plant.
