"Building Healthy Communities One Tree At A Time"


Urban Releaf is an urban forestry nonprofit organization established in Oakland California to address the environmental and socio-economical needs of communities that have sparse greenery or tree canopy. We are committed to the revitalization of core urban areas through tree planting that creates green jobs, increases environmental awareness and investigates the benefits of trees in low-income communities.


Since our establishment in 1998, we have been successful in planting and distributing over 15,000 trees throughout East Bay Area communities while conducting weekly tree planting events, delivering educational presentations to the public and creating job opportunities for youth and adults. Since 2004, we have also been involved in several long-term ecosystem research case studies.


Tree Planting & Maintenance engages community members to plant trees in core urban areas where there is a lack of greenery. After trees are planted, our staff helps to maintain them for the first 3 years.

Urban Forestry Education & Stewardship Training cultivates leadership & skills of young adults in urban forestry while building community capacity in environmental management.

Ecosystem Research explores the environmental and ecological benefits of trees as well as social, psychological and economic services they provide.
