Mission Statement

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

Description

Tree San Diego is a 50l(c)(3) tax-exempt organization which works to benefit the greater San Diego region by helping provide a healthier place to live, work and play.

We do not simply plant more trees! We plant the right trees in the right places. This sometime involves a complex decision. Available locations each have constraints such as the amount of available space, the climate region, the soil quality, the availability of irrigation, the slope, etc. Human needs also shape this decision, such as shade to reduce heat islands and energy costs in buildings, cleaner air with less greenhouse gas, reduced Stormwater runoff to improve the water quality of our rivers, San Diego Bay, and ocean.
