Our Mission

Our Mission is to close equity gaps throughout Los Angeles’ urban forest and facilitate the preservation, protection and growth of South LA’s tree canopy through progressive advocacy and community-based efforts.

South Los Angeles communities are losing the equity battle when it comes to trees. Join the South LA Tree Coalition in closing the equity gap and protecting our urban forest tree canopy.
