About Us


The mission of the Benicia Tree Foundation is to strengthen community by promoting and supporting tree planting, maintenance, and education.


The Vision of Benicia Tree Foundation is to offer an innovative, integrated, and engaging range of programs throughout the year focused on building community and a vibrant urban forest. Health and sustainability will be promoted through tree planting and preservation, and environmental education programs that result in significant and measurable improvements in Benicia’s urban forest and reduction of Benicia’s CO2 footprint.  


We envision that all individuals with an interest in our mission and vision for Benicia will have the opportunity to participate in this organization and our activities, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, age, gender, income, or property owner status.

What Does the Benicia Tree Foundation Do?

The Benicia Tree Foundation is an all-volunteer organization that provides opportunities for individuals, groups and businesses to support their community through tree projects and activities.  We sponsor tree planting events on public land in cooperation with public agencies such as the City of Benicia and the Benicia Unified School Distict.  We sponsor Tree Care Days at our project sites, recruiting volunteers to help maintain the trees we plant.  We offer the Tree Keeper Program to educate residents and businesses on how they can improve Benicia's urban forest by following best management practices for planting and maintaining trees on their property.

Consider volunteering at one of the events shown on our calendar.  If you have another idea on how to support our community through tree projects and activities, contact us at info@beniciatrees.org or 707-745-4546.  We are a non-profit organization and welcome donations in support of our mission.
