Have you heard the news?

Tree San Diego is excited to share that we have received $2,000,000 for our San Diego Regional Plan & Plat (P&P) project!

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service awarded more than $1 billion in competitive grants to plant and maintain trees, combat extreme heat and climate change, and improve access to nature. Communities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and several U.S. Territories and Tribal Nations have received funding, covered by the Justice40 Initiative and made possible by the Inflation Reduction Act – the largest climate investment in history.

What positive impacts will the P&P project make in San Diego County?
