Applying to TreeVitalize

TreeVitalize Pittsburgh supports street, park and riverfront tree plantings by supplying trees and services for locations throughout Pittsburgh.

Every Pittsburgh neighborhood is eligible to participate in TreeVitalize for fall 2017 plantings. Please contact Jeffrey Bergman, TreeVitalize director, at 412-586-2396 or to discuss your planting plan before moving forward with your project.

Submitting an application does not guarantee your group will receive trees, and funding for seasonal plantings is limited. Please review your community’s eligibility and selection criteria before applying.

Applications for fall 2017 community tree plantings are now available. Applications are due by Friday, March 17 at 4 p.m. All completed applications and supporting documentation can be emailed to

Application for City of Pittsburgh neighborhoods, Fall 2017

TreeVitalize Pittsburgh has been increasing emphasis on tree maintenance and monitoring after reaching the milestone of planting 20,000 trees, though community tree planting continues to be an incredibly important aspect to improve Allegheny County’s neighborhoods. As you are applying for trees in your community, here are some things to consider:
  • Plantings are now reduced in scale compared to the past, and are therefore more competitive
  • Preference will be given to communities below median household income
  • Communities at or below average tree canopy will be prioritized
  • Any municipality above median income is required to match TreeVitalize technical support with project funding
  • Applications must be completed before submitting with all supporting documents
