What is the
Urban Forest?

The Urban Forest is the aggregate of all community vegetation and green spaces that provide benefits vital to enriching quality of life for visitors and residents – including those pictured above and throughout this website.
Urban Forest 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.

HB Tree Society’s volunteers achieved in 2016!


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.

“Our Liriodendron tulipifera
(the Urban Forest’s tulip tree, shown below in
May 2017)
has matured and blossomed for the first time!  Just a few so far,
but I can see lots of buds and look forward to
a spectacular display. Enjoy!”
