Generations of students and visitors have enjoyed the shade of trees planted in the 1960s around Lake Spafford and in other parts of the UC Davis campus. Yet, many of these iconic trees are now in decline or have been removed due to age, disease and weather impacts.

Arboretum and Public Garden staff, student environmental leaders, volunteers and partners are working to bolster the aging tree canopy across campus by selecting, planting and caring for hundreds of young climate-ready trees. Donors are important partners in making this work possible.

This spring, the Arboretum and Public Garden's “Trees for Tomorrow” community campaign is supporting our Arboretum and campus tree programs, including the work of our Urban Tree Stewardship team of Learning by Leading student environmental interns. Your gift will also help fund a centerpiece of our tree focus in 2024 - the development of a landscape master plan for new climate-ready trees for the gardens, lawns and shoreline surrounding Lake Spafford. You can make a gift here anytime or plan to make a gift during our two spring campaign giving periods: UC Davis Give Day on April 19-20 and the Sacramento region's Big Day of Giving on May 2, 2024

Thank you for considering a donation to support campus trees and the students, volunteers and staff who care for them! By investing in our campus tree canopy and the people who steward it, donors catalyze our work to engage, empower and educate people of our community to create resilient, climate-ready landscapes, enrich our beautiful campus and foster a healthier environment for everyone.
