Tree Pittsburgh's mission is to protect and restore Pittsburgh's urban forest through community tree planting and care, education, and advocacy.

Our vision is to be a leader in creating a healthy urban forest by inspiring and engaging citizens to maintain, plant and protect trees. Taking care of our trees will improve our quality of life by maximizing the substantial public health, environmental, and economic benefits that trees provide.

Caring for Trees

Taking care of our trees improves our quality of life by maximizing the substantial environmental, social and economic benefits that trees provide.
