Your Children's Trees at UCSB

Santa Barbara, CA

Forest Trees


Your Children's Trees is a student community-based non-profit organization founded in coordination with the UCSB organization of the same name for the care of Santa Barbara County's urban forests. Planting trees in our cities helps bring back nature and provides many other benefits such as urban beautification, increasing property values, cleaning the air, and controlling water runoff. Your Children's Trees works to keep our urban forests healthy by planting and caring for trees in public areas such as schools and parks. We also undertake various educational pursuits such as participating in science nights at local elementary schools and conducting environmental restoration plantings in ecological reserves. It's important that we take care of the trees around us. These are not just our trees, but your children's trees.

Updates Fall 2021

We are excited to announce that YCT is transitioning back to in-person events and will be welcoming new volunteers to our tree care events beginning in October! To get involved please see our volunteer calendar for available upcoming events. To continue the climate of safety for all of our participants, we are requiring interns and volunteers to show proof of full vaccination. In addition to this, we are requiring masks at all in-person events held locally every Saturday morning where we are still actively planting and pruning trees and setting irrigation in service of our community. We hope to see you all at our events as soon as possible! Stay safe and check back for more updates!
