TreePeople inspires and supports the people of LA to come together to plant and care for trees, harvest the rain, and renew depleted landscapes. We unite with communities to grow a greener, shadier and more water-secure city at homes, neighborhoods, schools and in the local mountains. We work with volunteer leaders using our unique Citizen Forester model, and we influence government agencies for a healthy, thriving Los Angeles.
Born from the efforts of a teenager over 40 years ago, we have involved more than 3 million people in planting and caring for more than 3 million trees.
By supporting us, you support creation of progressive policies, incentives and laws to grow a sustainable city.
Where We Work
Our work is in the neighborhoods, schools and communities of the greater Los Angeles area, and the mountains and wilderness areas of Southern California. Our urban forestry focuses in areas with the lowest amount of tree canopy, particularly South LA and Northeast San Fernando Valley.
