Plant

Create safer, cleaner, and healthier neighborhoods by planting trees in your yard, on your street, and in your parks, and schools.

Around Your Home

Every home and business benefits from trees. Start with shade trees to keep your home cool and save energy in the summer months. Our Sacramento Shade Tree Program offers up to 10 free shade trees to SMUD customers. Review our Greenprint Tree Guide (.pdf) to see a list of the best trees to plant in our region.

In Your Community

Communities come together under a healthy tree canopy. From lower crime rates to higher property values, you can bring the benefits of free trees to the streets, schools, and parks throughout your neighborhood through the Community Shade Tree Program.

In your Jurisdiction

City and county streets and parks are home to most of our public trees. They are often the signature trees of a community because they are the largest and most frequently seen. We offer the Greenprint toolkit to everyone, from policy makers to tree professionals to home owners, who wants to know more about the planting, care, benefits, costs and value of trees. See the value of the trees in your community by visiting GreenprintMaps.

Across the Region

The Greenprint initiative is a regional framework designed to build an optimal urban forest in every neighborhood, business district, park, school, and street in our 6-county region. The Greenprint sets the stage for our efforts to plant 5 million new trees in the Sacramento region. Our Greenprint Champions are elected officials from our region's 22 cities and 6 counties that have pledged to develop livable and sustainable communities by building the best urban forests.
