What is San Diego Tree Week?
April 22-29, 2022
San Diego Tree Week, an initiative of The Water Conservation Garden, will bring neighbors together to plant trees in their community. Businesses, schools, and individuals will come together to celebrate the many benefits of trees.
This week-long celebration, April 22-27, 2022, encourages all San Diego County residents to appreciate and understand the usefulness of trees. The campaign aims to slow climate change by educating thousands of San Diegans about the benefits of tree planting.
San Diego Tree Week will teach our community as trees grow, we slow climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in the trees and soil, and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. Trees also offer cooling shade, block cold winter winds, attract birds and wildlife, purify our air, prevent soil erosion, clean our water, and add grace and beauty to our community. Join The Water Conservation Garden and get involved today!
How to Get Involved
Plan and host your own event! This is a great opportunity to bring your community together for a good cause! Select a date, time, and location. Then it’s time to secure your trees! See more about hosting your own planting in our Leadership Guide.

Find a public planting event and offer your time and efforts to plant trees! This is a great way to get involved, with less time commitment than hosting your own event. You can find nearby tree planting sites and events on our San Diego Tree Week interactive map below.
The Water Conservation Garden is always on the lookout for planting locations and partners who are committed to tree planting efforts. If you’re interested in becoming a tree planting location, please let us know.
