TREES PAY US BACK
Cost-Effective Parts of the Urban Infrastructure

The Urban Forestry Project (UFP) enfolds the entirety of Sustainable Saratoga’s tree effort, under which we educate, advocate and act on behalf of Saratoga’s urban forest.

The Tree Toga planting days are the most visible action taken by Sustainable Saratoga’s Urban Forestry Project.  Since 2014, we have organized Tree Toga planting efforts each year, deploying large numbers of citizen volunteers to plant, water, and host the trees.

Centennial Trees is our multi-year effort (2015-2020) through which Sustainable Saratoga is mobilizing a broad web of public-private partnerships to accomplish two primary goals:

(1) to regain a “large tree vision” for Saratoga’s urban forest, meaning that large-growing trees are at the core of our planting vision and

(2) while the Centennial Tree program is up an running, to plant a substantial and impactful cohort of large-growing trees in prominent, transformative locations around town, leaving a Centennial legacy for the kids and the grandkids

Thanks to former board member Jim Zack for this sequence of “then and now” views of North Broadway. Should the city restore the double rows of trees originally established in these spacious tree lawns?
