Urban Corps of San Diego County has been awarded $1.253 million in Proposition 68 funding from CAL FIRE’s Urban and Community Forestry, Urban Forest Expansion and Improvement grant program to plant 2000 trees throughout the county. The grant program is designed to employ and train 100 young adults on tree planting activities.
The project, entitled, San Diego County Urban Forestry and Arboriculture Project, has seven partners. The cities of San Diego, Imperial Beach, Vista, Encinitas and La Mesa along with the Rancho Santa Fe Association have signed on to be receiving partners, working with Urban Corps on plant palette, location and watering. Urban Corps will be working alongside Tree San Diego, a local nonprofit whose mission is to increase tree canopy in San Diego.
