Come get your tree!

TREE GIVEAWAY

Do you want to have your own tree that you and your loved ones can watch grow? Come get your free tree as part of our Tree Giveaway sponsored by Duke Energy Foundation on December 14th, 2-5pm at Eastway Elementary. We will be giving away ONE tree per Durham resident. 

We are excited to offer a variety of Crape myrtles as part of our initiative to provide more pollinator-friendly habitat in Durham. These trees are one of many crucial pollen sources for honey bees and native bees. So not only are you getting the amazing benefits of trees such as cleaner air and water, but you are increasing the ecological diversity in your backyard.

As an added bonus, we have partnered with local businesses to give you the chance to get a treat for planting a tree! As long as you have your tree receipt and a selfie with your tree, you will be able to choose one reward from some local businesses!

Come hug (and plant) a tree with us!

UPCOMING VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Tree planting from Trinity to Club

We would like to thank our 50 volunteers who came out this past Saturday to plant trees from Trinity Park to Club Boulevard! We were excited to partner with the RDU Black Professionals and the Trinity Park Foundation. Together, we planted 63 trees in just a few hours! 

Our mission to plant 1,000 trees

We are on a mission to plant 1,000 trees this winter! A generous grant from the Duke Energy Foundation for tree canopy renovation in East Durham has put us well on our way by helping fund the trees we planted with Stop Soldier Suicide, the trees in our Tree Giveaway, over one hundred new trees on Guthrie Avenue, and an Arbor Day planting event with East Durham Children's Initiative in East End Park. We want to thank Duke Energy Foundation for making such a goal even possible to dream about! As a volunteer-based nonprofit, we rely on volunteers like you to help us make such incredible things happen! Ready to join in?
