PLANTING 500 ADDITIONAL TREES IN BURBANK!
Plant for A Greener Burbank general description
With each tree planted, we are improving our homes and businesses, city parks, neighborhoods, and the overall Burbank community.
Join the campaign! Help us plant 500 trees throughout Burbank to improve our carbon footprint and reduce the impacts of global warming.
The City has had a long-standing commitment to supporting a tree canopy that is healthy, diverse, and resilient. Trees provide many benefits, including:
Cleaning the air and providing oxygen
Saving energy and reducing energy costs
Beautifying our surroundings
Reducing stormwater runoff
Providing a habitat for wildlife and native species
Reducing noise pollution
Keeping soils and pavement cool
Lowering daytime temperatures
Lowering stress levels
Providing other overall health benefits
The Plant for A Greener Burbank Initiative aims to add a minimum of 500 trees in Burbank’s parks, residences, businesses, and streets for the year 2021. Through the collaborative effort of Burbank Water and Power, Parks and Recreation, Community Development Department, and the Public Works Department, the Initiative is one of the City’s strategies to improve the community’s health and quality of life. In addition, the shared efforts align with the City’s 2035 General Plan and the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan.
