Community Canopy Grant Closes in on Planting Goals

As the rainy season ends, the second season of the Community Canopy tree planting program is concluding on a high note. To date, we have planted 676 of the 1,000 trees to be planted through our partnership with the City of Davis and CALFIRE, with one year remaining in the Prop 68-funded grant period. While we haven’t been able to hold volunteer events since March of 2020, we are grateful to all of our partners and Davis residents who have continued to provide their support during these abnormal times. The City of Davis Urban Forestry Division and the Sacramento Regional Conservation Corps continue to provide their time, knowledge and expertise, and we are so grateful for their collaboration and teamwork! If you or someone you know is interested in receiving a free tree, please sign up at

With assistance and support from the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden, we were able to plant 62 new Valley Oaks (Quercus lobata) and Blue Oaks (Quercus douglasii) along the South side of the newly constructed bike path along Russell Blvd. We will continue to work hard to restore this historical avenue of trees to try to bring back the beauty and shade that was once so magnificent along this corridor. Summer is approaching and our work will shift towards watering and maintaining the trees we’ve planted in the last two seasons, and working hard to find the remaining vacancies for the last upcoming season on the grant.

Save the Date!
Tree Davis will honor
Lois Wolk 
on May 1st at 1 PM

Lois Wolk has dedicated her career to public service and stewarding the environment. As a founding member of Tree Davis, Mayor of Davis, and State Senator, she has been a stalwart advocate of urban forestry, urban greening, and climate change mitigation. Tree Davis invites the public to honor Wolk at a virtual dedication of the Wolk Grove on May 1st at 1 PM.

The Zoom event will be limited to the first 100 people to sign up through Eventbrite:

In 1992, Lois helped create Tree Davis, the public-non-profit partnership that engages community members in enhancing and expanding the urban forest. As an elected official, she championed legislation that resulted in the planting of over 130,000 trees statewide.

It is now Tree Davis’ turn to pay tribute to Lois’ many accomplishments and her living legacy of caring for our shared natural resources to benefit future generations.

The dedication event will also be an opportunity to showcase Tree Davis’ new Climate-ready Landscapes initiative at the Tree Davis Memorial Grove, along with an internship program that will train the next generation of urban forest stewards. Fundraising has begun with a generous $5,000 challenge grant to jump-start support for the effort. To Learn more about Tree Davis’ work, visit our webpage: .
