You can register for tree plantings as an individual, or coordinate a group effort with your friends, colleagues or organization. The benefits are tangible, immediate, and ultimately improve the quality of life for thousands of citizens. You can volunteer for a community tree planting or provide ongoing maintenance for green projects of every kind.
