Please donate




When you donate to the Huntington Beach Tree Society, you “leave” a lasting benefit. Studies show that planting trees is the most effective way to clean our air.

Your donation will be matched with in-kind contributions of manual labor by local Scouting troops, high school students receiving service hours, and HB Tree Society volunteers. 100% of your tax-deductible donation will be used by our all-volunteer organization to forest the trail. Our only overhead – tree branches!

TREE FUND

sycamore2 beetle
A deadly infestation of the Polyphagous Shot Hole Borer, a beetle about the size of a sesame seed, has spread throughout Orange County. All infected trees need to be replaced. Sadly, this invasion is found throughout many of the trees in Huntington Beach. Many types of trees are vulnerable, including our Sycamores – like this one.

NURSERY

nursery HB Trees volunteers were given the opportunity to propagate native milkweed and stage other California-friendly and native plants at the HB Wetlands Conservancy’s plant nursery. This narrow leaf milkweed is used by the Monarch caterpillars to feed on, and for the female to lay her eggs on its leaves. We distribute these plants to anyone interested in planting them in their yards to increase the population of the Monarchs.
     Potting soil and narrow leaf milkweed starters are needed.

PROFESSIONAL TREE TRIMMING

Huge mature tree care requires paid professionals because it is too dangerous for volunteers to attempt.

CALIFORNIA-NATIVE & CALIFORNIA-
FRIENDLY PLANTS

monkey-flower

California water-wise natives, like this monkey flower, are needed. 

With funding, we’ll continue to add CA-friendly and fire-resistant plants in the HB parks and along the Shipley to Shore Nature Trail. 

PROFESSIONAL BOULDER PLACEMENT

In 2018-2019, the north end of the Urban Forest has been graced with boulders perfect for sitting and viewing one of Huntington Beach’s most picturesque places. More boulders are planned for way-finding along additional sections of the Shipley to Shore Nature Trail. 

TOOL SHED

Supplies, from shovels to trimmers to carts,

Why should you donate to us?  When you contribute to the HB Tree Society, Inc., you help keep one of nature’s most critical partnerships in balance.  Your donation is spent wisely, going straight toward getting trees into the Southern California landscape by our all-volunteer organization.

  • City trees bring enormous economic benefits to those who live near them by increasing property value and giving savings in heating and cooling costs.
  • City trees add to your overall health and to the enjoyment of living and work environments.
  • City trees have enormous environmental values including climate control, soil erosion protection, carbon dioxide and oxygen balancing, filtering of pollution, energy conservation and providing wildlife habitat.  There are hundreds of beautiful bird species that depend on urban trees for their homes.
