Trees are one of the best investments you can make in your community—not only do they provide environmental benefits like cleaning the air and cooling hot streets, but trees also have been linked to reduced crime, increased property values, safer traffic, and happier, more relaxed citizens.
Together, our members have planted over 15 million trees in cities across the country, with help from 5 million volunteers. We need your help to continue these efforts!
