Free STREET TREES!?
Urban Corps plants trees throughout San Diego County through grants and partnerships with cities, schools, individuals, and community organizations committed to the vision of urban forestry.
Youth in the program learn proper tree planting techniques, tree care, pruning and watering. While planting trees to improve urban and low-income neighborhoods, Corpsmembers are also educated on the aesthetics, benefits and importance of trees to the urban environment.
More than 27,000 trees have been planted by Urban Corps to date.
