PROJECT: Smart Roots

Goals

To develop a scalable outreach program that brings urban forestry education and climate change awareness to disadvantaged communities in San Diego County.

Objectives

Smart Roots will supplement existing mass tree plantings hosted by Tree San Diego by amplifying virtual Tree Steward trainings and providing educational material to stakeholders.

Deliverables

Training and education materials will provide tree canopy expansion​ and urban forestry information including tree benefits, planting and maintenance instructions, and water-wise best practices to local communities.

Benefits

Most tree planting programs have a range of economic, social, and environmental benefits. To learn more about the benefits of trees please visit our facts page. Additionally, trainings will help volunteers develop hands-on, industry-based skillsets.
