California Arbor Week, March 7-14

California Arbor Week

Every year on March 7-14, California Arbor Week works to unite community members, cities, and businesses to educate Californians on the value trees provide to building successful, healthy cities and neighborhoods.

Canopy joins the celebration each year by hosting various events where community members can engage with urban trees in their neighborhood, including tree plantings, tree walks, and festivals with fun for all ages.

Other Ways to Engage

1. Plant your own tree

“Why is California Arbor Week in March?” you ask, “Isn’t national Arbor Day in late April?”

Yes, it is! But in California’s warm Mediterranean climate, prime tree-planting time is in early spring, when rain is more likely and the weather is still cool. Newly planted trees need plenty of water and may have trouble getting established later in the season, when the hot, dry summer sets in. So Californians celebrate trees together while there’s still time to plant!

2. Take a tree walk
