North East Trees is one of the many non-profit partners involved in the City Plants initiative. City Plants is a public-private partnership between the City of Los Angeles, local non-profit organizations, community groups, residents, and businesses. City Plants is a unique hybrid organization under LA’s Board of Public Works with a non-profit 501(c)3 arm and foundation through Community Partners.
City Plants is a continuation of LA’s former tree planting program, Million Trees LA. Our new name reflects our changing priorities, which are to focus our efforts on low canopy areas and to plant in a way that maximizes the benefits trees provide rather than on reaching as specific number of trees.
