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.

California ReLeaf provides services to urban forestry non-profit organizations throughout the state. As President of the Board of Tree San Diego, i can attest to the fact that ReLeaf has been extremely helpful. We are a relatively new non-profit and have benefited by many types of information that ReLeaf has provided us. Through their excellent network they have also provided access to knowledgeable people in other urban forestry non-profit organizations. We also have benefited by the advocacy they provide for the benefits of urban tree canopy in the state.

I am a long-standing member of the board of the Markham Regional Arboretum Society in Concord, CA. We raise funds for and help maintain a nature park in the very middle of the town. Despite its proximity to wealthy Bay Area locales, Concord is a vibrant but economically challenged community. As such, it needs a park like this so much more than you can imagine.

That said, CA ReLeaf is one of our go-to organizations, helping us with grants, advice, and a fabulous network of like-minded groups. They have helped us raise not only our awareness of how we can put our assets (i.e., the park, our volunteers, etc.) to more effective use, but working with them has also raised our game in how we approach our programming, our services, and our very mission: we had overlooked (!) our function as an urban forest, and this alone has given us new focus.

Each person on the very small staff is deeply dedicated, positive, and genuinely nice. I am proud to be associated with CA ReLeaf and can only hope that they get to do even more for California, and the world, for many years.

As an environmental professional and Sacramento lobbyist I have been consistently impressed by California ReLeaf's impact on state policy and funding decisions. It is an absolute certainty that the state budget would contain millions of dollars less for urban greening and other conservation efforts if California ReLeaf were not engaged in Sacramento.

CA ReLeaf is a valuable partner, with my unqualified support.

California ReLeaf has been a steadfast and purpose-driven ally in the environmental and environmental justice communities' efforts to bring about considerable change. In particular, their state-level leadership in conservation and natural resource advocacy related to climate change has been remarkable.

I count myself lucky to get to work with California ReLeaf.
