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

About the Greenprint Initiative

What is the Greenprint Initiative?

Our bold vision to enhance the quality of life in our region by expanding the urban forest and maximizing the benefits of trees.

Our roadmap for mobilizing and empowering community partners and volunteers to plant 5 million trees in the Sacramento region.

Our proud partnerships with elected officials, service and faith groups, businesses, youth, and everyone who will help us reach our goal.

Who leads Greenprint?

A dedicated team of 28 elected officials from local jurisdictions who stand up for trees in their communities and champion the regional urban forest.

What is Greenprint Membership?

Local jurisdictions invest in the Greenprint by becoming Greenprint Members and in return receive services aimed at developing partnerships with community members and local businesses. Greenprint Members commit to developing local urban forest initiatives that are specific to and appropriate for their community.

Why do we call it Greenprint?

Just as blueprints are plans for craftsmen to construct buildings, Greenprint is our plan to build a thriving urban forest for the region. Greenprint is intended to complement the Blueprint, the regional smart growth plan adopted in 2004 by the Sacramento Area Council of Governments.
