Tree Planting Season Is Back!

Summer Tree Care

This summer was not easy for LA’s trees.

We’ve seen the impact these five years of drought have had– and with each heat wave this summer, we lost even more trees. We want trees to live, so in the summer we shift our focus to care for them get through these hotter hots and drier dries.  

That’s why we’re proud to share that this summer, more than 700 TreePeople volunteers joined us to care for almost 2,000 trees!

Tree Planting Season Begins!

Now that fall and (hopefully) cooler temperatures are upon us, we can get back to planting!  

This season, we’re heading out to LA’s parks, neighborhoods and schools to plant new trees to keep communities safe, shaded and beautiful.

Bonus Points: Join us at one of our planting events this fall and get a tree! Select events throughout the season will be coupled with “Tree Adoptions.” Volunteer with us to learn how to plant a tree– then adopt one of your own to plant in your neighborhood!

We can’t plant all of these trees ourselves. We need your help!  Visit the TreePeople Events Calendar today to sign up for an event near you!

Here are a couple we’re excited for. Will you be there?

October 8th: Bette Davis Picnic Area in Griffith Park.  

We plants 84 trees at this park this spring  in partnership with City Plants, Los Angeles Recreation and Parks and the Los Angeles Center for Urban Natural Resources Sustainability and we’re heading back to plant more! Will you help us reforest this park that was struck by drought and tree pests?

October 8th: Melrose Avenue Elementary School.

TreePeople and our partner LA Beautification Team are working together to plant trees at Melrose Avenue Elementary School.  Join us for this planting that will bring shade to school kids for generations to come!
