Worcester Tree Initiative: Rebuilding Worcester's Urban Forest
Our organization exists to grow, care for, and protect Worcester's urban forest. Our community based approach includes education and training, tree planting, and long term tracking and care to achieve significant improvements to the environment and to quality of life in our city.
Growing an urban forest is hard work. Lack of space, poor growing conditions, and damage done by people, both accidentally and intentionally, make cities and towns tough places to grow trees, but in our view, it's not optional. We wouldn't want to live in a city without trees and we doubt you would either.
That's why we're asking you to consider supporting our efforts. We work to rebuild Worcester's urban forest and ensure that it is healthy, well cared for, and equitably distributed. We need your help to ensure that this work is carried out. You can do this in a lot of ways, from volunteering to donating; learn more by clicking below.
Thank you to all of our supporters who fund and help staff the programs that we provide throughout the year! We rely on the assistance from the community to help us through volunteering, participation in our programs and financial contributions towards our programs. Thank you!
