The Sacramento Tree Foundation is working with the elected officials of the SACOG to double the region’s tree canopy over the next 40 years! The goal is to maximize the benefits of our urban forest (air quality, water quality, energy, real estate and businesses).
The Greenprint is a call to action and a plan of work for each of the 28 local governments in the six-county region to adopt tree canopy goals, policies and ordinances, best management practices, and community involvement strategies. Official adoption of the Greenprint by city councils and county board of supervisors is taking place right now!

This is a great opportunity for those of you pushing for multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional approaches to tree canopy recovery at a regional scale.
