This Nationwide Network of Local Nonprofit Tree Planting Organizations is United in an Effort to Plant Trees for a Better Tomorrow
Local impact happens when community-based tree planting organizations create projects that involve citizens, schools, churches, and government. This is the work of the 160 members of the Alliance for Community Trees program. These passionate nonprofit organizations are the boots on the ground — a grass-roots network united in their purpose of improving communities and towns across the country with trees.
Since 2005, the Arbor Day Foundation's Community Tree Recovery program has been devoted to providing restoration assistance for disaster-stricken communities. In 2020, the program was able to produce major accomplishments through an adversity-stricken year.
With the Benefits of Strong and Sustainable Urban Forestry Programs, Communities Can Thrive.
The Tree City USA program has strengthened and sustained urban forests across the country thanks to support of Foundation members and partners. From the Gulf of Alaska to the Gulf Coast, nearly 155 million Americans are living in Tree City USA towns and cities that pay particular attention to tree planting, management, and care.
