Who is TreePeople?
TreePeople inspires and supports the people of LA to come together to plant and care for trees, harvest the rain, and renew depleted landscapes. They unite with communities to grow a greener, shadier and more water-secure city at homes, neighborhoods, schools and in the local mountains. They work with volunteer leaders using their unique Citizen Forester model, and they influence government agencies for a healthy, thriving Los Angeles.
Born from the efforts of a teenager over 40 years ago, they have involved more than 3 million people in planting and caring for more than 3 million trees.
- Trees are vital for LA’s future. A healthy tree canopy protects us in a changing climate.
- Trees cool our city. Trees reduce the build-up of heat from exposed asphalt and buildings, and decrease energy demand.
- Trees are key to better water management. Trees slow the runoff of rainwater and absorb it into the ground, prevent pollution and soil erosion, and are key to a clean and ample water supply.
- Trees create a better home for everyone. Trees make the air breathable, streets walkable, and schoolyards playable. They provide habitat for wildlife and food for people. Trees truly make LA livable.
