We offer expertise, training, tools, and advice so that we may empower our community to plant, protect, and learn about trees.
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. The first step is to review the trees we offer and set up an appointment with a Community Forester.
The NeighborWoods Program is your opportunity to grow the forest in your very own neighborhood! This program focuses on building investment in your neighborhood by working toward a greater, greener vision through trees. Work directly with one of our expert Community Foresters to plant the right trees in the right places throughout your neighborhood and maximize the many benefits of trees for your community.
Trees make Sacramento a great place to live, learn, and play. Our schools and parks are the perfect setting for large shade trees. We can provide free expert consultation and free trees for your park, school, or other public space through our Community Shade Tree program.
We work to replenish and sustain the native flora and fauna of our region by replanting and protecting native trees and woodlands. We collaborate with the County of Sacramento and City of Elk Grove, as well as the development community, to plant and nurture native trees in open spaces. See a list of places where we have planted. We also implement habitat restoration projects, such as the Bear River Habitat Trail project funded through the Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Program.
The Urban Wood Rescue program salvages and reuses lumber from urban trees that need to be removed due to disease, pests, or safety issues. Get regular updates about products and services available by signing up for the Urban Wood Rescue email list.
For more than 30 years we have trained volunteers to advocate and care for our urban forest. The Save The Elms Program builds on that foundation by training citizen scientists to help identify Dutch elm disease symptoms in order to slow the spread of the disease.
Seed to Seedling is an award-winning California native oak curriculum for 3rd and 4th graders. Kids learn about natural and cultural history of California's native oaks and the incredible benefits of trees. Participating educators can also choose to participate in our seedling growing program.
