Million Trees LA plants trees throughout Los Angeles without direct support from the City's General Fund. We partner with private corporate sponsors and local non-profit tree planting organizations. This video highlights the efforts of two of our partners: JMB Realty and the Los Angeles Conservation Corps. JMB Realty invested in MTLA and our urban forest in the middle of the Great Recession, and the Los Angeles Conservation Corps employs young people from some of LA's most under served communities. This partnership serves as a model for the nation. It allows us to grow and sustain our urban forest while investing in our communities.
The primary mission of the Los Angeles Conservation Corps is to provide at-risk young adults and school-aged youth with opportunities for success through job skills training, education and work experience with an emphasis on conservation and service projects that benefit the community. In 25 years, corpsmembers have planted more than 32,000 trees, removed 12 million square feet of graffiti, cleaned 5,000 blighted alleys, built 25 playgrounds for children, rescued 14,000 marine animals at the Corps' SEA Lab, restored 900 acres of natural habitat, taught 19,000 schoolchildren about recycling, and recycled more than 10,000 TONS of bottles and cans from schools and communities.
