Welcome to Cool Parks

Invest from the Ground Up, in partnership with West Coast Arborists, Inc, and the Western Chapter International Society of Arboriculture is once again planting trees across California under their newest initiative – Cool Parks. With a generous grant from CAL FIRE, the Cool Parks team is working alongside partner cities and nonprofits to bring 2500 trees to California’s disadvantaged and low-income communities, organize a CA Tree Team workshop, and engage residents to learn and care about the trees in their city. Invest from the Ground Up is a campaign by the California Urban Forests Council, the first urban forest council in the nation. Check out our upcoming summer and fall events!
