What We Do
On a mission to preserve and protect Atlanta's urban forest
When Trees Atlanta was founded in 1985, its stated purpose was to protect and improve Atlanta's urban forest by planting, conserving, and educating. 30 years and over 113,000 trees later, that mission remains the same. Through a combination of full-time staff, our dedicated and ever-growing community of volunteers, and partnerships with contractors and corporate partners, Trees Atlanta is committed to maintaining and expanding the natural tree canopy of our great city.
