Review for Our City Forest, San José, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

What a terrific nonprofit! I was a neighborhood association leader for many years, and worked actively with OCF to restore the treescape of our neighborhood which had been neglected for decades. They work enthusiastically, tirelessly, and with expert skill. Also, their cost efficiency is amazing -- they accomplish so much with a shoestring staff and a small budget. Thanks to OCF, our neighborhood now has much-needed shade on our streets, which translates into 1) more walking, 2) less electrical use, 3) less sun-caused pavement damage, 4) more groundwater absorption, and 5) neighborhood pride, among other benefits. A wonderful group -- there's nothing like them in the South Bay!

Role:  Volunteer & I led efforts to have trees planted in our historic neighborhood,.
