    30 yrs. ago i raised about 150 seedlings in our greenhouse.they were then planted in ca. by a group of people,these were all endangered spiecies.i was told that i erased my tree footprint!

      Good work! Do you still start trees in your greenhouse? Please keep planting to help tip the balance in favor of an abundant tree canopy in urban centers. (After all, there are some greenhouse effects we DON'T want...)

        Share your thoughts or insight Unfortunally no. I moved to Utah right after the trees were planted.…have only been back in CA for 5yrs now.I'd love to do it again but I'm renting a room for myself & my little dog,Maya.If there is something else I could do,let me know!

          We love our volunteers, so if you're near LA, please come out to an event. If you're further away, why not send a tree dedication to someone?
