In 1973, TreePeople was born from a teenager's dream. From the beginning, Andy Lipkis' vision was to connect the power of trees with the power of people to heal Los Angeles' damaged ecosystem. From successfully inspiring the planting of a million trees in L.A. in time for the 1984 summer Olympics, to planting seven miles of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in a single day, to become a globally recognized leader in urban watershed management, TreePeople has made a major impact on the urban sustainability movement. Now the organization is embarking on vision to re-imagine and remake L.A. as a greener and healthier city, and invites you to join in.
