Grow Urban- A Tree Planting Movement

What and Where

There are over 200 missing street trees in downtown San Diego, many more are dying or need to be replaced. Planting trees is one of the most significant ways to improve the social, mental, environmental health and economic well-being of the city. URBAN INTERVENTIONS created and partially funded an effort to replant missing street trees throughout downtown working with San Diego Partnership’s Clean & Safe program. This has been embraced by and expanded into a larger ongoing initiative attracting grants and funds from businesses and organizations.
