Dedicate a Tree

Planting a tree is one way to establish a living memorial that will bring peace, joy and security for generations. Likewise, the planting of a tree can be a gratifying act, which honors the memory of a friend or relative, or recognizes a special person or occasion.

Sacramento: City of Trees? Addressing the Inequitable Distribution of our Region’s Urban Forest

West Sacramento Community Center, West Sacramento

Friday, July 28 8:30A - 10:30A

Recently, a new project launched by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) confirmed the long-held belief that Sacramento is the “City of Trees.” Using Google Maps’ street view data to measure tree cover in 17 cities around the globe, Sacramento was found to be number one in the United States and ranked third overall. While exciting news, there is still much work that needs to be done. Trees are integral to human health. People who reside in neighborhoods with more trees have lower rates of obesity, are more active, show lower levels of depression, and live longer lives. Unfortunately, the Sacramento Region suffers from stunning inequity when comparing the canopy cover of different neighborhoods, preventing many from reaping the benefits of our glorious canopy. Join us as we explore a brief history of Sacramento, highlighting the lack of investment in certain communities. Learn how urban greening dollars are working to build community engagement while expediting tree planting in under-canopied neighborhoods. Discuss how we can plan for the future, making sure that trees and green spaces are at the forefront during the design of new communities instead of merely an afterthought.

Caring for Trees in Low Water Landscapes Workshop

Carmichael Library, Carmichael

Saturday, August 5 10:00A - 12:00P

During the drought last year, many trees died due to insufficient water. Many trees were also stressed and weakened due to these problems, resulting in many more trees blowing over in strong winds in the winter months. At this workshop, you'll learn how to keep your trees alive and healthy in a low-water landscape. Learn how to identify water deficiency in young and mature trees and how to correctly water these trees.
