How can trees be investments in healthy neighborhoods?
Some neighborhoods have few trees, as historically the lots were smaller, front yards were filled in to provide off-street parking, and street trees were not planted or not replaced if they died. These (and all) neighborhoods need more healthy trees—in street rights-of-way, parks, parking lots, schoolyards, routes to school, places of workshop, businesses, backyards and front yards.

Kate’s Trees has resources for community groups—we will walk you through the questions to consider, including: Where can I plant a tree? How can I get a tree? How do I grow a healthy tree? Inquire
Kate’s Trees can help with promotion, education, and follow-up, starting with a key contact at your organization. We can work together to identify locations to plant and water trees.
Contact us for a learning session or short briefing. We also offer coaching for community members interested in being the primary contact person for their neighborhood.
