Tree Week 2022

Tree Week 2022

Tree Week 2022

Our 5th annual Tree Week in 2022 was a week-long celebration of the trees and greenspaces around us! Through a series of nature and tree-themed events, Tree Week strives to foster a deeper appreciation and understanding for the important roles nature and trees have in improving our quality of life. Tree Week 2022 helped us join together to appreciate and support our trees so that they may continue to provide these important benefits for us. Learning to properly care for a tree, planting new trees, and even learning to name trees are all things that we can do to support the trees where we live.
