What We Do

TreePeople inspires, engages and supports people to take personal responsibility for the urban environment, making it safe, healthy, fun and sustainable and to share the process as a model for the world.

To achieve this, we...

  • Train and support communities to plant and care for trees
  • Educate schoolchildren and adults about environmental issues
  • Demonstrate sustainable solutions to urban ecosystem problems
  • Work with government agencies on critical water issues
  • Operate a beautiful public park

We invite you to volunteer with us, take part in our programs, dedicate a tree and visit our headquarters in Coldwater Canyon Park.

What we don’t do

  • Protect trees from being cut down
  • Trim residential trees
  • Sell, give away or accept donations of live Christmas trees
  • Plant trees outside the Los Angeles area
