Mission Statement

Canopy plants and cares for trees where people need them the most. We bring the life-giving benefits of trees to the schools, neighborhoods, and public spaces of the San Francisco Mid-Peninsula.


We envision a day when every San Francisoc mid-peninsula resident can go outside and walk, play, and thrive under the shade of a healthy trees.

As a small organization, we depend on passionate volunteers to help us make a big impact through tree planting, tree stewardship, and environmental education.

Come join us, and help us grow the urban forest in Palo Alto, East Palo Alto, and surrounding areas -- because healthy trees create healthy communities!

Would you recommend Canopy?

What better way to spend your Saturday afternoon than planting trees for future shade? I had such a great time with my nieces! The volunteer leaders were friendly and very informative. It's a great tradition to start with your family... you can visit the location year after year to see your trees grow and help make the community beautiful! Highly recommend for all ages.

Well organized event that will have a major impact on the community that was once severely underserved.
