Tree Friendly Yards

The trees in our yards, neighborhoods and cities are living infrastructure. They pay us back many times over by cleaning our air, cooling and shading our homes, alleviating flooding and pollution, offering health benefits, and increasing property values and the attractiveness of a community. Our care of them can help keep them healthy.

Follow These Four Steps

Creating an urban forest is a big task, and it all begins with each of us adopting four steps: do your best to preserve your trees, use best practices for tree care, hire a trusted arborist to help make the best decisions for your trees, and spread the word. With these core values, we can grow our urban canopy and create the habitat our wildlife needs. Make your commitment to these four principles official by signing our Tree-Friendly Yard Pledge!
