Why do we do what we do, and why are we so passionate about street trees?
This guy breaks down some pretty good reasons for growing our urban canopy.
CityTrees is a volunteer group, formed in May of 2000, to promote and support urban forestry efforts in Redwood City. CityTrees works with the City of Redwood City Public Works Department to plant and maintain trees along Redwood City’s streets, at schools, and on other publicly owned property. Since forming, CityTrees has planted 3,233 trees in the greater Redwood City area.
