About

The Sacramento Tree Foundation is a community benefit organization working to build healthy, livable communities in the Sacramento region by growing the best urban forest in the nation. 

Technical Advisory Committee

The Sacramento Tree Foundation receives technical guidance from leading experts in the field of arboriculture. These technical advisors help us select trees suitable to our area and identify the best practices for planting and care of trees.

Because of these generous volunteers, the Tree Foundation continues to be a leader in community forestry. The committee meets quarterly and all of the members are volunteers who dedicate their time to direct the organization. The Tree Foundation sincerely appreciates their dedication and could not be a science-based organization without them.
