Trees Atlanta is a nationally recognized citizens group dedicated to protecting and improving Atlanta's urban environment by planting, conserving and educating.  We pursue our mission through several programs:

1. Planting -- Each weekend during our planting season (October-March), we organize between one and three NeighborWoods planting projects around the city. These projects are completed in cooperation with local volunteers and typically include representatives from the specific neighborhood(s) receiving the trees. Additionally, Trees Atlanta contracts with local professionals for more difficult plantings, where larger trees are planted in challenging environments such as within sidewalks or public right-of-ways.

2. Conserving -- Throughout the year, but with a focus after planting 
season ends, Trees Atlanta also maintains the trees we've planted throughout the city.  Maintenance work includes watering, pruning, and mulching trees, with a focus on newly planted trees that are still establishing themselves. Maintenance is performed through a combination of volunteer projects and our own Urban Forestry Crew. Additionally, we dedicate staff and volunteer resources (and we even have a herd of sheep and goats too!) towards removal of damaging invasive species, like kudzu and Chinese privet, which can choke out native species and ultimately, kill trees.

3. Education -- Trees Atlanta works tirelessly to educate the public including public officials about the extraordinary benefits of trees while emphasizing the need to protect and expand Atlanta's own tree canopy. These efforts include our TreeKeeper certification program, Atlanta Beltline Arboretum Education Program including our docent-led walking tours, and our annual Tree Sale & Festival.  An educated public will lead to improved environmental stewardship and healthier communities throughout the area.
