Policy & Research
Conducting cutting-edge research and facilitating policies that support nature-based solutions.
TreePeople works from the policy level to the grassroots level to facilitate actionable research and science-based policies, incentives, and applicable demonstration programs to transform Southern California utilizing nature-based solutions. In collaboration with partners, we use green (trees), blue (water), and brown (soils) infrastructure in urban and surrounding areas to create community resilience for all.
