Green Up California!

Trees are known as powerful carbon-capturers that help us fight climate change, but their benefits don’t stop there. Their canopies create shade that cools our neighborhoods, improve air quality, promote active transportation, help manage stormwater in our streets, create a sense of peace and calm, foster natural ecosystems in our cities, and make beautiful streets! California’s urban forests are made possible by organizations and volunteers planting and caring for trees, calling their representatives to advocate for policies, and educating the tree stewards of tomorrow. You can help!

“I think that we all can experience the ‘silo effect’ when we work in our own community. It is empowering to be in direct contact with an umbrella organization like California ReLeaf that can expand our consciousness about California politics, how we play into the larger picture, and how as a group (and as many groups!) we can make a difference.”–Jen Scott, Network Member
