TREEPEOPLE STATEMENT ON GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN’S BREAKING EXECUTIVE ORDER SETTING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSION TARGETS
LOS ANGELES, Calif.— Today Governor Jerry Brown signed an Executive Order calling for a greenhouse gas emissions target of 40% below 1990 levels by 2030.

Happy Earth Month, fellow tree people!
A greener LA is always on our mind, but this month especially we’re thinking about the love we give to our urban forest. Climate change and a record drought mean that trees are stressed, and keeping LA green and sustainable is more important than ever. We rely on volunteers to help us transform our region into a healthy urban ecosystem, and there’s no time like the present to start doing your part!
Here are all the ways you can help out this month.… Read more >>
It’s not every day someone joins us and instantly connects with our staff and community, but when they do, we take notice!
Meet Merrill Koss, this month’s featured volunteer.
Merrill started volunteering with us in November 2014, after discovering one of our flyers in one of his favorite places to hike: Coldwater Canyon Park, our headquarters.
“I was always rushing all the time and for some reason I decided to stop,” he recalled. “And I said, I’m going to read one of those TreePeople pamphlets.… Read more >>
