Trees improve our lives with beauty, shade and fruits — and they cool the planet by taking in carbon as they grow. Certain neighborhoods have many trees, and enjoy these benefits, while others endure the hot, harsh effects of living in a “concrete jungle.” This social justice issue of “tree cover inequity” calls us to act.

San Diego and Imperial Counties need one million more trees over the next decades, especially in low-income areas.

This initiative will help participating schools and parishes to identify the right trees and planting location, and will provide the necessary training to prepare the soil, plant, irrigate and care for the trees.

Trees can be planted at individual homes, on school or parish grounds, or as part of a regional effort, such as wildfire recovery, restoration ecology or urban renewal.

We invite everyone’s participation, but especially that of youth and young adults, and of schools and parishes in underserved areas.

We will have a video in English and Spanish showing the proper way to plant and care for a tree. Please email us if you’re interested participating in this fall campaign. You may participate by planting a tree, by donating your labor to help plant trees, or by providing funds to pay for them.
