About Tree San Diego

Tree San Diego’s mission is to significantly impact the quantity of quality urban forest in San Diego County. Quantity means increasing the percentage of urban forest. Quality means the right trees, in the right places, properly maintained

Tree San Diego is a recently incorporated organization that has applied for non-profit, 501(c)(3) status. We are in the process of building our volunteer workforce and creating the internal capacity to be a major proactive force in enhancing the region’s urban forest through various programs. It works collaboratively with many other organizations that contribute to environmental and human sustainability. We recognize that quality urban trees are one part a system that includes natural factors (other flora, fauna, soil, air, climate etc.) and human factors (human health, hardscape, transportation, buildings, etc.).

Tree San Diego works to benefit all of the county’s 18 cities, unincorporated areas, military bases and Native American reservations. Get involved and help make San Diego County a healthier place to live, work and play.
