Treekeepers of Washington County
Mission Statement

Our mission is to protect and advocate for trees in Washington County.

Our Key Objectives are:

We engage with local communities and advocate together to protect existing trees in unincorporated Washington County. 

 We collaborate with other organizations and volunteers to maintain or increase tree canopy in Washington County, especially in schoolyards.

Why Protect Existing Trees?

In many parts of urban unincorporated Washington County, large trees and groves are being removed during development. A healthy urban forest canopy provides significant benefits such as cooling our temperatures, absorbing pollution, soaking up rain that causes flooding, and other benefits. 

Our goal is to show that trees and housing developments CAN and should coexist, and there are already examples around us. Join our movement to protect trees!
