Mission Statement

To engage in educational, scientific, investigative, artistic, literary, historical, philanthropic, and charitable pursuits, to protect and restore the natural and historic heritage of the Los Angeles urban region and surrounding communties and to preserve the natural character of their lands for these purposes. We support and encourage communities to reflect these values through urban forestry, preservation, creative planning, education, and wise stewardship.

Description

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. Claire Robinson, NET's new executive director, also brings diverse experience to the organization. Alternately a historic preservationist in Paris, an architectural professor, and a business manager, she possesses the energy and expertise to direct North East Trees' growth in the coming years.
