Does TreePeople donate stakes or other planting supplies?
Not directly. Instead we empower our Citizen Foresters to either utilize DWP's Trees for a Green LA program (which supplies trees, stakes and ties for projects in the city of Los Angeles) or to seek funding for planting supplies, refreshments, and other project needs.
By teaching these skills, we make our Citizen Forester projects accessible to all communities. The community organizing skills taught as part of our Citizen Forester training often build momentum, leading groups to organize other community improvement projects.
Additionally, all Citizen Forester projects are given free access to TreePeople's community tool bank that includes shovels, gloves, digging bars, and other tools.
