National Tree Policies

ACT members include the most innovative nonprofit tree conservation organization in the country.

Urban forestry is simply about trees in places where people live.
Ultimately, conservation is about empowering citizens to improve the communities where they live and work. The Alliance for Community Trees is the only national organization working to improve the urban forests where 80% of Americans live- our cities, towns, and villages. ACT’s national office assembles coalitions that drive broad environmental success for our more than 180 organizations in 41 states in the pursuit of Clean Air, Green Streets, and Healthy Neighborhoods.
Do you plant, preserve, train, or educate? Join our national coalition to:

  • Share resources and ideas
  • Access grants and online fundraising
  • Shape national policy- be part of a larger voice
  • Get NeighborWoods planning tools
  • Receive research and funding updates
  • Join a successful peer community
  • Promote a common agenda for trees
  • The Alliance for Community Trees seeks to improve public policy through not only supporting the Forest Service’s Urban and Community Forestry program, but also advocating for the role of trees in Energy & Commerce, Transportation & Infrastructure, Financial Services, Environment & Public Works, and Science. By lobbying for specific bills and amendments and encouraging hearings on related issues, we work to educate lawmakers about the economic and community development benefits of trees in their districts.
    Join the most innovative nonprofit tree conservation organization in the country to influence how healthy urban forests are part of the solution to seeding great communities.
