Mission Statement

Our mission is to cultivate a green and healthy Silicon Valley by engaging community members in the appreciation, protection, growth and maintenance of our urban ecosystem, especially our urban forest.

Description

The ultimate goal of the program is to facilitate the planting of one million trees in Silicon Valley, utilizing one million people. We have planted over 70,000 trees in San Jose, encouraging community members to join us in improving the environmental conditions of their communities. We focus on making a healthy urban forest accessible to all by offering services targeted towards disadvantaged communities because we believe a healthy environment should be available to all people, not just those who have the resources to access it.

People are very nice there. They also helped each other to plant trees.

Fun group, working in teams and getting your hands dirty for a great cause which improves our local community

Planting trees was fun! Got hands dirty and good for the family. Some events are harder than others because we are hand digging but as long as there are a good number of volunteers it is a good experience overall.
