Programs

We offer expertise, training, tools, and advice so that we may empower our community to plant, protect, and learn about trees.

NeighborWoods in South Natomas

NeighborWoods is a community-led movement to improve our neighborhoods and bring neighbors together through tree planting and care activities. Bring beautiful, tree-lined streets, shaded parks and schools, and full-canopied yards to the area where you live.

We can provide free trees, tools, expertise, and education needed to grow a forest in YOUR neighborhood!

WHY ARE TREES A GOOD IDEA? 

Neighborhoods with more trees have...

  • Tighter-knit communities
  • Higher property values
  • Safer and walkable streets
  • Lower energy costs
  • Higher activity levels
  • Better air/water quality
  • Lower rates of obesity

Let’s plant more trees to create a better tomorrow for our kids.

 


Build community. Improve the neighborhood.

Plant trees.

What’s your vision for a greener tomorrow? Let's talk.
