Our City Forest provides a fantastic opportunity for the city of San Jose to become a healthier, prettier and greener city. They provide free trees to city residents and schools. They educate the community on how to plant and care for the trees, and on the importance of the trees. I've been to several of their events and have been very impressed by the organization that goes into each event. It's wonderful to see how they work with people, as young as elementary school age through senior citizens. It is a priviledge to have this organization in our city.

You can go to many places all over the City of San Jose and find young trees planted by Our City Forest. There is a flowering pear tree in front of my grandmothers house that Our City Forest volunteers planted for her. There are also trees along the main road leading into my apartment complex all planted by Our City Forest and their volunteers.

The Great!

I've seen how much prettier a street lined with trees look. Also, I see the long term benefits -- such as improved air quality, beauty, animal habitat.

Have more advertising and make sure everyone in the City is familiar with Our City Forest.
