Trees Atlanta is a nonprofit community group that protects and improves Atlanta’s urban forest by planting, conserving, and educating.
Trees Atlanta's work relies on community-lead stewardship of our urban forest by teaching, leading, and inspiring volunteers. Each year, thousands of individuals, groups, and businesses volunteer with Trees Atlanta in neighborhoods across metro Atlanta. The outcome of our work is better quality of life, health, and well-being for people in all communities who all deserve access to the benefit of trees.
Since our founding in 1985, Trees Atlanta has planted 150,000 trees to date, restored hundreds of acres of forested areas in the city, and taught youth and adults in classrooms, summer camp, and at volunteer projects the hands-on skills to plant and care for trees.
Our newest endeavors include Youth Tree Team, a youth job training programs that help high school students gain hands-on green job skills; green infrastructure storm management installations that use trees and plants to control water flow and flooding issues naturally; and working with community leaders to improve tree protection standards in city ordinances and leveraging trees as a critical part of a city's infrastructure. These efforts have recently resulted in collaborations with multiple cities in metro Atlanta, such as the One Million Trees Initiative and the free Yard Tree Program.
The success of our programs depend on close collaboration with volunteers, community groups, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and municipal partners throughout metro Atlanta. It also is dependent upon funding from organizations and individuals like you.
We thank you for your support in time, energy, and donations, and look forward to continuing to work together to protect our "City in the Forest".
