Tree Week is back! October 9 - 16, 2021

The Urban Forest Initiative, along with our partners, are excited to announce our fourth annual Lexington Tree Week! We are also thrilled to be sharing Tree Week with several other communities across Kentucky. 

 

Please join us as we celebrate the trees and greenspaces around us with our friends, neighbors and communities.  Tree Week 2021 events include tree plantings, tree walks, tours and hikes, educational programs for youth and adults, art, yoga, and much more in communities throughout Kentucky. Please follow public health guidelines in effect in your community.

Tree Week across Kentucky!

The Tree Week team is thrilled to partner with multiple communities that are hosting their own Tree Weeks. Check out below for more information on each community hosting a Tree Week in 2021!

Hazard

Hazard Community and Technical College has been hosting Hazard Tree Week in the fall and the spring since 2018. They have been with us since the beginning and we can't wait to host Tree Week together again this year.

The Paducah community will be hosting their first Tree Week this year! Both teams are so excited to start this partnership.
