The Huntington Beach Tree Society was incorporated in 1998 as a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) with the purposes of:
- Planting and maintaining trees
- Educating the public about the benefits and importance of trees & California friendly plants
- Enlarging our green environment (another name for plants/trees in cities) for the enjoyment and health of all
- Increasing habitat for urban wildlife
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.
