Growing Trees Make Great Neighborhoods

We envision thriving and prosperous California communities transformed by healthy trees and green spaces. We advance smart investment in green infrastructure through education and outreach, community-based activities, and collaborative action.

Partnering for success

Our seven regional councils provide essential expertise and assistance to their respective regions. Working with local partners, the regional councils organize events, and activities to help grown great communities across California.

Our Mission:

To advance smart investment in urban and community trees, parks, and green spaces through outreach and education, community-based activities, and collaborative action.

Outreach and Education

We put on workshops throughout the year and an annual conference. Topics have included: Leading in your Community; The Built Environment & Public Health; Tree Risk & Urban Forestry; Saving our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder, and more.

Community-Based Activities

Our Invest From the Ground Up program is a public awareness program consisting of two parts:
1) Education and outreach to civically-minded Californians in order to encourage the care of trees and green spaces.
2) Large scale regional tree plantings across the state for carbon sequestering and air pollution reduction.

Collaborative Action

With a focus on building a strong coalition, we work with other statewide organizations such as the Western Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture and California ReLeaf.
