Great Tree Canopy Comeback

Trees help with environmental pollution, provide shade, increase property values and add to the beauty of a community. Local parks have lost half of their tree canopy due to weather, disease, and parasites over the past 50 years. This is your invitation to help us combat this critical loss of trees. We are in need of volunteers and business to help sponsor and plant trees for the parks. Your help would be a lasting gift to the community.
