North East Trees’ mission is to restore Nature’s services with communities through a collaborative resource development, implementation, and stewardship process. The organization accomplishes this mission in socially and environmentally impacted Los Angeles through five program elements: • At-Risk Youth Environmental Stewardship • Urban Forestry • Park Design and Build • Watershed Rehabilitation • Community Stewardship and Involvement
North East Trees (NET) is a growing grass roots environmental group comprised of designers, planners, and a construction team that develops habitat and open space in the Los Angeles area, with a focus on Northeast Los Angeles. Over the years, North East Trees has contributed greatly to the environmental quality of Los Angeles. While North East Trees is best known for the Los Angeles River miniparks it designed for the Mountains Recreation Conservation Authority (MRCA), we have also been enhancing existing parks, schools, and streets with plantings, miniparks, and interpretive signage. Our construction crew employs local youth, mixing valuable job skills with environmental values. Some of our recent planning efforts have even caught the attention of state officials. The Arroyo Seco Watershed Restoration Feasibility Study, conducted with the Arroyo Seco Foundation, was noted by the State of California to be one of the top ten watershed restoration studies in 2001. Our founder, Scott Wilson, has used his many talents to further the organization: devoted educator, landscape architect, contractor, arborist and visionary.
