“Tree Musketeers is a living testament to the ability of a nonprofit organization to effectively collaborate with the city and every sector of a community to accomplish goals which  many thought could never be achieved. Further, this organization exemplifies the valuable resource every city has and may not be capitalizing on – young citizens. Perhaps most noteworthy is this and other Tree Musketeers projects have inspired young people around the world to take action locally to fight global warming.

“As Mayor, I have had the honor of recognizing Tree Musketeers for its work time and again. I am always profoundly humbled to look at the hope and determination in those young faces. The City of El Segundo is proud of its enduring partnership with Tree Musketeers and being home to young citizens who have virtually mobilized children around the world to improve our planet.” – Bill Fisher, El Segundo City Mayor


“At first working as a volunteer was something I would not have had interest in, but after my time here I can say I have a different perspective. The Tree Musketeers are a very unique and unbelievably important organization for the community and to the rest of the world.” – Jason C., Court ordered volunteer


“We had a very enjoyable and enlightening time. James took the time to tell us a bit of history on the habitat we would be working on. He explained the different plants we would be planting and then gave us his vision on future plans. Our team was very interested to learn a few new things about plants, planting and the area in general. Our team was so excited about what they accomplished that all were sure they wanted to participate in a similar program in the Spring.” – Johnson Controls Volunteers
