Tree Week is back! October 6 - 15, 2023

Join us for our 6th annual Tree Week, 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. Scroll down to check out our entire calendar of events from 2022 and check back soon for more information about events for 2023!

Now more than ever, it is imperative that we look to our tree canopy as a source of strength and relief in the face of a changing climate. Trees in our communities help to offset the negative effects of climate change. They reduce storm-water runoff, cool cities, filter air and water pollutants, store carbon dioxide, and help improve mental health and wellbeing. 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. Celebrate trees and learn more about how you can support our urban forest during Tree Week 2023.
