City Forest Renewal: Pomona
City of Pomona
The City of Pomona is located in the Southern California Inland Empire region. The city is 22.96 mi², creating challenges in managing an urban forest spread across such a large geographic area. Pomona stands to benefit greatly from this project by being able to focus on tree planting for the first time in years. Each tree removal is inspected by a Certified Arborist to determine if trees meet the criteria of dead, diseased/declining, or hazardous due to drought, pests, or structural defects.
DAC/SDAC Map – City of Pomona
Disadvantages Communities (DACs) & Severely Disadvantaged Communities (SDAC) are determined by Median Household Income Data. Projects funded through Prop 68 funding require a majority of funds to go to DACs/SDACs.
Trees Removed through City Forest Renewal
Trees were removed throughout the city. Identifying removals is a collaborative process between the city and our grant partners. Specifically for this grant, removals can only be done if they pose a risk or are diseased and declining.
In exchange for grant-funded removals, the City of Pomona will plant two trees for every one tree removed – ensuring the preservation and expansion of Pomona’s Urban Forest.
When trees are planted and data is collected, the map will be updated.
