CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER
TreePeople’s mission is to inspire, engage, and support people to take personal responsibility for the urban environment, making it safe, healthy, fun and sustainable, as well as share our process as a model for the world. Born in 1973 from the hopes and dreams of a teenager, TreePeople is now one of the largest environmental organizations headquartered in Southern California. We have inspired, engaged, and supported more than 3 million people to take action for our environment by planting and caring for trees in forests, mountains, parks, and our neighborhoods. Our unique, engaging and proven model empowers communities to plant a more resilient future and take personal responsibility for greening their neighborhoods.
Through our on-the-ground research and educational programs, TreePeople shares knowledge with policymakers, students, educators, and communities around the world. After fires burn, TreePeople reforests. When schools are covered in concrete, TreePeople creates green schoolyards. When communities experience food insecurity, TreePeople donates fruit trees. When California is drought-stricken, TreePeople designs solutions to capture rainwater. As the world faces increasing threats from a more hostile climate, TreePeople helps create actionable solutions.
Trees need people. People need trees.
