We’re a group of entrepreneurs, executives, thought leaders and overachieving students who realized that people do their best work when they’re having a great time. With a strong passion for improving the environment, spreading positivity and investing in the future of our youth, we decided to take a close look at the LA communities in areas where there is the greatest need of tree planting.
At a Tree Party, doing good feels good. Students and community leaders organize vibrant gatherings that bring people together, while forging a positive connection with the next generation they’re planting for.
We plant saplings that will provide cleaner air, as well as a host of environmental and social benefits proven to dramatically improve neighborhoods.
We believe in meaningful, measureable impact that students can celebrate long after the party is over.
Middle school and high school students learn, engage and make friendships that last a lifetime, while developing crucial leadership and organizational skills
Every Tree Party is an occasion to be remembered. Students laugh, make new friends, meet community leaders and take part in a meaningful bonding experience.
The energy at our events is palpable. Gathering people in the name of health and wellness creates a special experience everyone wants to be a part of.
Our participants feel connected to their environment and each other. It’s not what happens at the Tree Party but rather what happens after. People leave feeling enriched and motivated to keep doing good.

BOSTON (AP) — Where are the trees? More important, where aren’t the trees? A lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is helping some of the world’s cities answer both questions in an attempt to make them more pleasant places to live and work.
