Canopy protects and grows the urban forest in Palo Alto, East Palo Alto, and neighboring communities.
Because trees are a critical element of a livable, sustainable urban environment, Canopy’s mission is to educate, inspire, and engage youth, residents, schools, businesses, and government agencies to protect and enhance local urban forests.
Canopy has planted thousands of trees in Palo Alto, East Palo Alto and Menlo Park. We have a 98% survival rate for newly planted trees. We've also reached hundreds of school kids with our education programs, helping them learn about the environment. We engage hundreds of volunteers of all ages and backgrounds in our tree planting and tree care. Canopy also advocated for our urban forest with local and state governments.
