Natural Environment

Our region is home to significant natural resources and diverse landscapes, habitats and wildlife species

From the Lake Tahoe National Forest to the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, our unique geography, flora and fauna is a treasure to be protected through active environmental stewardship.


Sacramento Tree Foundation

Greenwise Joint Venture is working with the Sacramento Tree Foundation as the lead agency in the region to plant 3 million trees by 2020.

Our urban and rural landscape has a canopy of more than four million trees.

Trees offer numerous environmental benefits: they convert carbon dioxide to oxygen, remove pollutants from the air, cool urban areas, provide food and add to the beauty of our landscape.
