Urban Forests for San Diego County

Cody Harrison, Program Manager, Trējuvenation Project at Tree San Diego.

Tree San Diego is a 50l(c)(3) tax-exempt organization addressing the significant deficit in the San Diego region’s tree canopy, thereby contributing to human and environmental health. We collaborate with governmental, non-profit, and private entities including ones that work for human and environmental sustainability and justice. Our mission is to significantly increase the number and impact of urban trees in San Diego County and beyond–by adding right trees, in right places, for right reasons, with right care, i.e., “Terrific Trees”.

Cody studied Environmental Science and Policy at Duke University and graduated in 2012. Since then he has been working through the LLC he started in college as a Beyond Sustainability Specialist in sectors such as wastewater, regenerative agriculture, and housing, where he communicates complex technical concepts into marketable and commercially viable systems that leverage technology as a tool for social good. Cody is committed to creating integrated urban systems - blending the built environment with its surrounding ecological and agricultural systems while operating economies that actually regenerate the planet. He has diverse skills in designing engineered solutions to environmental challenges and influencing behavioral change.
