TreePeople is an environmental nonprofit whose mission is to unite the power of nature, people and technology to create a sustainable future for Los Angeles. TreePeople is among the largest independent environmental organizations in California. Sustained by a staff of 50 educators, foresters and administrators as well as thousands of trained “Citizen Foresters”, TreePeople has played, and will continue to play, a leading role in mobilizing Angelenos, private businesses and government agencies to work together to create resilient urban communities capable of withstanding the mounting challenges of climate change.
TreePeople’s passionate commitment to the environment and its unique implementation model, known as “Citizen Forestry”, engage and inspire Angelenos at both the grassroots and policy levels to take environmental action in their communities. Over the next ten years, TreePeople and its Citizen Foresters will spearhead the transformation of Los Angeles’ urban ecosystem by:
Mobilizing Angelenos into a community committed to adapting the City’s resources and infrastructure in response to severe climate change
Expanding forestry and education programs that inspire thousands of volunteers to improve the health and safety of Angelenos by planting and maintaining trees in wilderness areas, urban neighborhoods and school campuses
Transforming Los Angeles’ urban landscape into a living watershed to capture, clean, store and conserve rain and storm water in response to droughts and diminishing resources
Fostering collaborative partnerships that bring private businesses, non-profit resources and government agencies together to research, develop and implement system-wide solutions to environmental problems
In the coming years, TreePeople will inspire Angelenos to reimagine and reclaim Los Angeles’ future. TreePeople will empower Angelenos to come together to combat and adapt to climate change through individual action, technology, and collaborative partnerships in order to create a more holistic, integrated and sustainable Los Angeles.
