2009 Timelines: TreePeople History

  • TreePeople, in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, launches Forest Aid to plant 35,000 seedlings and help restore the San Bernardino National Forest. Forest Aid was created in response to the 2007 and 2003 tragic wildfires where 185,000 acres burned in the San Bernardino National Forest.
  • TreePeople, as part of a partnership led by The Council for Watershed Health who brought together local agencies and funding partners, completes the Elmer Avenue Neighborhood Retrofit that transformed a residential street into a model “green street” incorporating stormwater best management practices that capture and filter runoff from a 40-acre area, and help to reduce extreme flooding in the area.
