My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for California ReLeaf, Sacramento, CA, USA
I am a Urban Forest manager working for municipalities throughout CA. Early in my career I found many times that non profit tree groups in our state worked in conflict with tree care professionals. During the last 20 years I've had many occasions to work together with ReLeaf and have found they are educating both the "Tree Huggers" the needs of trees and the professionals the values citizens have for trees. This education has been in multiple forms, my favorite is when we all work together on projects and that is where ReLeaf has been a major partner on many projects I've worked on with them and other industry groups. As example the first time our regional air quality board excepted that trees help clean the air 2004 and funded projects for action through today while we work on developing Best Management practices for Tree Care for Birds and Wildlife. ReLeaf has been a key to helping our urban forests in CA.
