About ReLeaf

Mission & Goals

California ReLeaf was founded in 1989 and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2004. Our mission is to empower grassroots efforts and build strategic partnerships that preserve, protect, and enhance California’s urban and community forests.


California ReLeaf works statewide to promote alliances among community-based groups, individuals, industry, and government agencies, encouraging each to contribute to the livability of our cities and the protection of our environment by planting and caring for trees. California ReLeaf also serves as the State’s volunteer coordinator for urban forestry in partnership with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

Our goals include:

  • Expanding delivery of services and resources to California ReLeaf Network groups.
  • Broadening funding opportunities for urban and community forestry projects.
  • Fostering involvement within the urban forestry movement throughout California’s diverse communities.
  • Improving legislative outreach and advocacy efforts on a state and federal level.

Sponsors

California ReLeaf’s programs are possible because of generous support from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and the USDA Forest Service.
