National NeighborWoods® Month is an annual October celebration that bring attention to the value of trees in our communities. Fall is a time when most of the country’s weather accommodates good tree-planting, though many people may not have tree-planting in mind.
We invite you to participate in National NeighborWoods® month by volunteering, hosting a local event, or donating to help plant trees during October. This year marks the event’s 10th Anniversary and we expect it to be the biggest yet with more trees in the ground and volunteers engaged!

USDA Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell reminds us of the value of urban trees and encourages everyone to get involved in National NeighborWoods® Month. Here’s what he has to say:
“National NeighborWoods® Month is the annual celebration of trees in our communities. All month long there will be tree plantings, educational workshops, tree tours, and community green-ups in cities and towns across the country.
I encourage you to get involved both personally and professionally. National NeighborWoods® Month is an opportunity to forge lasting partnerships for the health and resilience of our urban forest for the benefit of generations to come.”
