Responding to an alarming trend of the loss of trees in Pennsylvania’s metropolitan areas, TreeVitalize is a public-private partnership to help restore tree cover, educate citizens about planting trees as an act of caring for our environment, and build capacity among local governments to understand, protect and restore their urban trees.
Launched in 2004 in southeastern Pennsylvania. TreeVitalize has planted over 350,000 trees through the help of many partners and interested community volunteers. In spring of 2013, TreeVitalize will become available to all counties.
Tree-lined streets make communities look great, and they also clean the air, provide shade to cool buildings and paved areas, increase property values and help control stormwater.
We’re counting on you!
