I became acquainted with California ReLeaf shortly after moving to Sacramento in search of a job in the environmental nonprofit world. The staff met with me without hesitation and helped me come to understand the vast network of environmental nonprofits across California. As a working organization, my impression is that California ReLeaf is well-organized and thoughtful in their actions. Additionally, the staff are easygoing, passionate, and open-minded. Overall, I see the organization as an integral part of California's environmental efforts and I am extremely humbled to have met and worked alongside them.

When we started Richmond Trees, we knew what we wanted to achieve but not how to get there. With the guidance and support of California ReLeaf we were able to grow our small all volunteer group into a well oiled machine that gets the job done. They have supported us with their networks and webinars and all the support a volunteer group needs to succeed.

Currently working closely with much of the California ReLeaf Staff - extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and all around great. Truly a pleasure and one of the leading NGOs in urban forestry

As our climate changes and our drought lingers on, it becomes crucial that we all begin to understand the importance of our trees. Does the average Californian or for that matter elected official, realize that beyond esthetics, our trees provide cooling to our urban environment and also naturally store gallons and gallons of water in their root systems, to name just a few advantages. California ReLeaf does a fantastic job of educating the citizens of this state, to the incredible benefits of cultivating and protecting our canopy. The information and resources provided by California ReLeaf, will make a "tree hugger" out of the most skeptical amongst us.
