Build Your Business Team While Making LA Green

Corporate Forestry

Our greatest strength as an organization is our incredible volunteers. We are lucky to have so many people who love to help and want to do more. An exciting way that TreePeople is able to get more folks involved is through our corporate volunteering program.

Our corporate volunteering program was introduced with the goal of providing an experience that is both inspiring and rewarding for your team. These events are typically at sunny parks across Los Angeles, where our Forestry staff provides you with the guidance and tools your group needs to make the project successful. We are there to guide you through the process by providing tips and feedback, but the day is about your team contributing to a greener, more sustainable Los Angeles and effecting positive change together.

TreePeople hosts private tree planting and tree care events at sites all around Los Angeles. The events can occur on weekdays or weekends. This is a fun and unique way to encourage team-building at your next office party or retreat!

Our corporate volunteering program helps support your group event while funding TreePeople’s community work. Thanks to these events we are able to host environmental field trips for students, conduct tree care and planting on school campuses, city streets and in local parks, distribute fruit trees to underserved communities, restore the Santa Monica Mountain ecosystem, and replant local forests ravaged by wildfires. If you are interested in participating in our corporate volunteer program, please e-mail Sarah Kern at skern@treepeople.org.

Nicole Liner-Jigamian joined the TreePeople family after a year abroad in South and Central America, where she was lucky enough to spend most of her time outdoors, meeting new and interesting people. Upon returning to her hometown of Los Angeles, she knew she wanted a career that would allow her to further develop her knowledge of the natural world while continuing to form strong relationships with people and the community. TreePeople provided the best of both worlds. In her free time, Nicole enjoys riding her bike, watching action movies and cooking.
