Reviews for California Releaf

Rating: 5 stars  

California ReLeaf has done a great job of passing along grant opportunities and funds to communities and groups to facilitate tree planting, tree maintenance, and tree education. They have partnered with other organizations to expand resources, advocate for trees, and demonstrate the value of trees where people live, work, and play.

If you are interested in grant funds, participating with projects for planting trees, or want information about the value and importance of trees, California ReLeaf can provide the information or partner to help you.

As a marketing/communications advisor to California ReLeaf over the last several years, I have found them to articulate a clear mission and objectives, and to deliver on the mission with strategic thinking and actions. From advocating for urban trees at the state level, to serving members through grants and technical assistance, staff have also taken new leadership roles to facilitate the development of cohesive statewide messaging on the drought and caring for trees. The trees and urban forests are lucky to have this organization!

As an urban ecology consultant, I've worked with CA Releaf in several capacities. Their dedication to urban forestry and their professionalism are unsurpassed. They work tirelessly, and often unseen, to advocate for trees and the organizations that support urban forestry. The resources they offer--from their newsletter to their webinars to their grant opportunities--make the field stronger and more valuable.

The CaReleaf team is the go to resource for State of California legislation, education materials, and technical support. Cindy Blain and Chuck Mills have built valuable relationships with government, non-profit and industry partners. We admire their leadership; not an easy task in the largest state in the union! Thanks, Lee Ayres , CEO, Tree Fresno

I decided to become a member of CA Releaf because I was inspired by their work that supports community-based organizations and they are moving in the right direction with Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in mind and practice. They're putting in the work.

It is a great honor for me to work with California ReLeaf, as a partner and director. Over 25 years, California ReLeaf has built a reputation as a national leader in the field of urban and community forestry. As the umbrella organization leading over 90 community non-profit groups, ReLeaf focuses on increasing awareness and involvement in tree planting and stewardship of California's urban landscapes. Measured by the number of trees planted and surviving, the number of volunteers engaged, and the health of our urban and community forests, California ReLeaf celebrates statewide success year after year. Now engaged in the Save Our Water and Our Trees! campaign, ReLeaf is using its broad network of partners and volunteers to get the word out about saving our investment in trees, while saving water during California's drought.

California ReLeaf has been a stellar partner and friend to the California Climate and Agriculture Network. Their efforts to unify various organizations around a common goal have been crucial to our own work, as well as that of countless other groups. California ReLeaf staff are driven, experienced, creative, professional, and -- most of all -- a blast to work with.

I am the President of a non-profit in Riverside California called Victoria Avenue Forever. We are an all-volunteer organization that is dedicated to the beautification and preservation of a historic street (on the National Register of Historic Places) called Victoria Avenue. We plant trees and roses and plant and maintain "pocket park" gardens. CA ReLeaf has been a tremendous resource for us. Among the aid they have provided is helping us get liability insurance, providing funding for planting trees and providing support through their newsletters, Facebook page and website.
