Statewide Tree Grant Part of NeighborWoods Month Celebrations

Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
During the month of October, South Carolina residents can request a free tree through the State Tree Grant Donation Program. Donated trees are to be used for beautification projects on public properties around the state. All trees will be granted on a first come first serve basis, and proposals must be postmarked by October 10. The grant is on our website and is available only to South Carolina residents.

Purpose: To celebrate the benefits of trees in the places people live. During National NeighborWoods Month, we want to share the message that planting and caring for trees adds value to our communities. Trees are not just a local concern but a national one as well. Your participation in National NeighborWoods Month not only enhances your community’s health, but also furthers our collective efforts to ensure that everyone gets to live in neighborhoods with trees.
Note: National NeighborWoods Month is part of the National NeighborWoods program, an initiative to re-green North American cities from coast to coast. The National NeighborWoods initiative is a program of the national Alliance for Community Trees in partnership with The Home Depot Foundation.
