The Cambridge4Trees mission is to reverse the collapse of the city's tree canopy. The first action was to organize watering of street trees by residents during the height of the historic 2022 heat waves and drought. Actions and advocacy planned for 2024 include:

  • Fix the Tree Protection Ordinance to actually protect trees
  • Advocate for city management to fully fund & implement the 2019 Urban Forest Master Plan
  • Advocate for city management to reorganize parks & tree management to prevent another Danehy Park tree disaster
  • Recruit residents to water trees, especially during droughts and heat waves


"Cambridge4Trees" is "Cambridge Citizens for Liveable Neighborhoods, Inc." (CCLN), a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation serving the community since 1994. CCLN has been registered with the city "doing business as" the "Association of Cambridge Neighborhoods" for many years. To better serve this new mission started in 2022, CCLN has now registered "doing business as" Cambridge4Trees.
