Our Greening program pursues tree, garden, and median plantings throughout the greater Industrial District of DTLA. The planning and implementation of each project includes community engagement and participation. The community must be involved in all steps of the process from planning through permissioning to planting to ensure success and ongoing support for new trees.

We have learned from experience that planning and preparation are essential to seeing through successful greening projects. Many different logistical challenges must be overcome and many different entities engaged. Planning and preparation takes many months and revolves around lining up the necessary approvals.

*UPDATE: Due to the local microclimate, the Pink Cloud Cherry Blossom trees did not fare well and were replaced with Jacaranda and more Australian Willow trees.
