Pacifica welcomes volunteer efforts to plant and maintain trees throughout the city from private citizens. Tree City Pacifica is a citizen’s group of local residents working to inspire Pacificans to plant, nurture and celebrate trees. Tree City Pacifica also works to educate residents regarding the value of trees to increase property values, enrich biotic communities and fight climate change. The group was instrumental in helping Pacifica become a Tree City USA city — a designation granted by the Arbor Day Foundation. Each year on the second Saturday in November, Tree City Pacifica works with the City to organize Pacifica’s annual Arbor Day. Volunteers are welcome to come plant and celebrate trees.
