RFP for Tree Planting Program

You are invited to participate in the Request for Proposals (RFP) process for the Invest From the Ground Up-Community Tree Planting Program


The Invest From the Ground Up-Community Tree Planting Program is a regional tree planting and education program led by the California Urban Forests Council and the Western Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture.  In 2013/14, the program is launching in the San Francisco Bay Area (nine-county area) and the Southern San Joaquin Valley (Kern and Tulare Counties) to plant thousands of trees all in one day – February 15, 2014.  In partnership with California ReLeaf, the Local Government Commission, and many others, the program will include organizing, training, and equipping selected tree planting partners for the main event, while also learning from partners, teaching the community about tree care, and sharing new knowledge about trees in our communities.  This program is made possible by grants from the USDA Forest Service and CAL FIRE.  Please see the Request for Proposals for more details.
