The Huntington Beach Tree Society, Inc., was founded as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1998 to help protect and care for the Urban Forest.
What is the Urban Forest? The Urban Forest is the aggregate of all community vegetation and green spaces that provide benefits vital to enriching the quality of life.
Our goals: To improve the Urban Forest, educate the public about the importance of urban forests, and try to connect a young person to every tree we plant.
Exceptional attributes: We are an equal opportunity, all-volunteer organization. Donations do not go to salaries. We have a donated office and donated use of two trucks. Our dollars go a long way! To date we have purchased and planted more than 5,000 trees residing on the two and a half acres within the Urban Forest’s fenced area, as well as the areas immediately surrounding the forest.
