Past Arbor Aid Events
Arbor Aid is Tree Pittsburgh's annual fundraiser: an event that features artwork created from salvaged and reclaimed wood.
History of Arbor Aid
Arbor Aid was conceived by Tree Pittsburgh and late local woodworker John Metzler, founder of the Urban Tree Forge. Arbor Aid celebrates the possibilities presented to us by trees as resources within our city. Rather than make mulch or firewood from urban trees that need to be removed, Tree Pittsburgh encourages giving them a longer life by repurposing them as art, furniture, flooring and everything in between.
