Placer Tree Partners (PTP) was initially formed as a subcommittee of the Auburn Ravine/Coon Creek Watershed group. Our mission is “to create, nurture, and sustain a community where a variety of healthy trees are abundant in all areas, providing beauty, serenity, cooling shade, and good health to residents and visitors for generations to come.”
You are invited to join the PTP, which consists of arborists, landscape architects, foresters, community leaders and planners, backyard gardeners, and interested citizens. The group focuses its efforts on a wide geographic area, from Penryn to Colfax, bounded by the Bear River to the north and the American River to the south. Through our work and outreach activities, the PTP goals are to:
- Increase public awareness and appreciation of trees in an urban forest setting.
- Increase tree owner awareness of the unique importance of trees to personal and public well-being and to property values in both private and commercial settings.
- Provide education and assistance in appropriate tree selection for specific uses and spaces.
- Encourage continued and successful stewardship of trees by stimulating awareness of the diversity, sensitivity, and importance of a tree’s canopy and root system to its health and longevity.
