On December 19, Western PA Conservancy’s TreeVitalize Pittsburgh program announced they are now accepting applications for 2019 Community Tree Planting Grants.  The deadline for applications is March 15.
TreeVitalize Pittsburgh currently supports street tree plantings within the City of Pittsburgh and in Allegheny County by providing forestry expertise, trees, supplies, and planting event coordination for neighborhood groups.
The TreeVitalize Pittsburgh program’s street tree plantings help the Conservancy and its partners meet the goals of Pittsburgh’s 10-year Street Tree Management Plan. The plan is based on tree inventory data collected in 2014 and helps guide our work to increase the street tree population.
