Urban Forestry

Date:Apr 05, 2017

PUENTES is partnering with CalFire and CA ReLeaf on several urban forests initiates to reverse decades of local canopy loss and set Stockton on a trajectory to restore the city’s once proud urban forest. The programs focus on replanting up to 1,000+ saplings across disadvantaged areas where tree canopy expansion adds the most to resiliency.  Overseen by master arborist, the initiatives will last for at least 3 years and provide amble educational opportunities for students, parents, urban residents, and businesses to learn and participate in the expansion and the caring for the urban forest, providing widespread community engagement in the efforts.
