About


Planting it forward.

Our mission is to cultivate a green and healthy Silicon Valley by engaging community members in the appreciation, protection, growth and maintenance of our urban ecosystem, especially our urban forest.

 

Greening the Silicon Valley since 1994

Our City Forest has been Silicon Valley's nonprofit urban forestry and environmental stewardship the leader since 1994. We believe in the power of trees to turn our neighborhoods and cities from gray to green, and we believe in the power of people to help achieve this transformation.
