Welcome to City Trees!


CityTrees is a volunteer group, formed in May of 2000, to promote and support urban forestry efforts in Redwood City. CityTrees works with the Redwood City Public Works Department to plant and maintain trees along Redwood City’s streets, at schools, and on other publicly owned property.

Saturday tree plantings are sponsored by CityTrees once per month during the spring and fall. Tree prunings are held several times during the summer; one pruning workshop with Redwood City’s arborist is held early in the year to train volunteers.

Next events: 

CityTrees and the Redwood City Public Works Dept. are pleased to announce our 12th annual Tree Pruning Workshop on Saturday, March 7th, 2015 from 9:00am to Noon. Location: Redwood City Public Works building at 1400 Broadway in Redwood City. The workshop will consist of approximately one hour of classroom training on tree care and maintenance. The focus is on younger trees. We will discuss the care of trees and related aspects in basic tree biology. Other topics include: the reasons for pruning, the priorities of tree maintenance, tree growth types, and safe work practices. The class will then walk to a nearby outdoor location for hands-on practical training in pruning techniques. Coffee, juice, and bagels will be served. Space is limited, so if you are interested in attending this workshop please respond to Simms Duncan (rsduncan@yahoo.com) to express you interest. A suggested donation of $10 or more is requested to help CityTrees with our ongoing mission to plant and care for trees in Redwood City. We hope to see you there!

We will send out notice to our mailing list ... are you on our mailing list? Go HERE to put yourself on it!
