I am a former employee of California ReLeaf and a current donor to the organization. In my 4+ years with the organization, I was consistently impressed with the organization at every level-- its professional staff and board, its wise use of resources, its integrity, and its effectiveness in advancing urban forestry in California. I am proud of the work they are doing to make California a better place to live and work.
California ReLeaf is a wonderful organization that supports local tree nonprofits across California through community-based grants, education programs, mentoring, and advocacy. The staff is top-notch – very professional and friendly!
