Grow Urban- A Tree Planting Movement

What and Where

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 co-created and partially funds an ongoing effort to replant missing street trees throughout downtown, , working with Downtown San Diego Partnership’s Clean & Safe program. In 3 years, 355 trees have been replaced, a comprehensive tree inventory using GIS mapping has been completed and the program has expanded to include tree maintenance, education and community engagement. This has attracted grants and funds from individuals, businesses and like-minded organizations.
