The 2,400 Trees Campaign is a community-wide effort coordinated jointly by the City of Woodland and the Woodland Tree Foundation. The City’s Climate Action Plan calls for increasing Woodland’s community tree canopy 50% by 2020 by planting 6,000 new trees between 2014 and 2020 and maintaining and nurturing existing trees. As an initial step toward this target, Mayor Stallard has announced a goal of planting 2,400 trees community-wide in 24 months (July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2016).
The Woodland Police Department, in an effort to increase its community presence and outreach activities, is recruiting volunteers to expand its Volunteers in Policing (ViP) program. This program actively supports the City’s goals of 1) maintaining Woodland’s quality of life by ensuring the highest level of public safety through the development of a volunteer program at the Police Department; and 2) fiscal responsibility by the creative utilization of volunteers to assist in community outreach.
