Trees for Oakland contributes to building the urban forest all over Oakland by planting and maintaining trees in the city, with emphasis in areas with limited canopy. By doing so, they aim to educate people about trees, combat climate change, and provide a more equitable distribution of trees within Oakland. Since inception in 2017, Trees for Oakland has already planted more than 70 trees around Oakland. Trees for Oakland works primarily in east and west Oakland, areas that historically have the smallest tree coverage, and experience the greatest threat from future climate change as well as ongoing environmental health issues.
