Let’s GREEN Riverside

Let’s GREEN Riverside

With your help, we will be planting 1,000 street trees and giving away another 1,000 yard trees.

Hi Riverside! We are TreePeople, a Southern California-based environmental nonprofit that started in the mountains above Riverside almost 50 years ago on the belief that everyone has the power to change the world through the simple act of planting a tree. Since then, we have partnered with communities across Southern California to plant over 3 million trees with over 3 million people. We are excited to continue our work in the Inland Empire by joining with the residents of Riverside to plant 1,000 street trees and distribute 1,000 fruit and shade trees to plant at homes.
