PROJECT: Branch Out San Diego

Questions about the project? Email BranchOut@treesandiego.org today!

The Branch Out San Diego project will serve disadvantaged and low-income communities through a private residential land planting project consisting of 1,575 trees, paired with an educational tree care program. The trees will be selected by residents at Tree San Diego events in neighborhoods throughout the county and on Indian reservations. Branch Out San Diego aims to:  

  • Provide state-of-the-art aerial imaging data through photogrammetry for cities to use in urban forestry plans with on-the-ground mapping software to run tree planting reports

  • Increase residential energy savings, reduce GHG emissions, and provide GHG reductions to cities

  • Foster community engagement and environmental awareness by engaging stakeholders

  • Provide hands-on forestry training to community groups and local residents

  • Increase tree canopy and urban forests, and reduce heat island effect

  • Strengthening collaboration and integration between partners  

  • Providing inclusive tree planting and education workshops 

  • Improve the quality of life and build community

  • Expanding job creation of part-time positions
