Los Angeles Park Forests

Our Park Forest Initiative adds small “forests” to city parks throughout L.A. to offset our carbon footprint, cool surface air temperatures, and educate the public about climate change. Sponsors will have the opportunity to plant groupings of climate-appropriate trees for all Angelenos to enjoy. In partnership with Mayor Eric Garcetti, we hope to plant thousands of new trees citywide in the coming years.

Project Goals:

  • FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE by building an urban ecosystem to capture carbon output
  • GROWING URBAN CANOPY by providing new shade coverage in high-need neighborhoods
  • CREATING WILDLIFE HABITATS by establishing natural environments to benefit local fauna
  • RESTORING FIRE DAMAGE by re-planting trees in communities affected by recent wildfires

Sponsorship package includes:

  • Design, planting, and long-term care of site-specific installations & educational outreach
  • Plaque commemorating the sponsor
  • Forest size & elements tailored to the needs/conditions of the park
