The CEC and the City of Burlingame (The City) invite you to join us in the greening of Burlingame. You can help The City live up to its name; The City of Trees. 

The City plants about 300 new trees each year. Trees enhance our urban environment, clean our air, and leave a legacy for our planet and future generations. Trees are the lungs of the earth! 

Young Trees need watering during their formative years to thrive in an urban environment. You can help by volunteering to water a tree during its first 2 years. It only takes 5 gallons of water each week.

 Individuals and groups are welcomed!
