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, we expect nearly 1,000 local events nationwide to engage people in the appreciation, care, and planting of trees in their communities.

USDA Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell reminds us of the value of urban trees and encourages everyone to get involved in National NeighborWoodsTM 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.” More
National NeighborWoods™ Month is made possible by a generous contribution from The Home Depot Foundation with additional support from the USDA Forest Service.
