Applying to TreeVitalize
TreeVitalize Pittsburgh currently supports street tree plantings within Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh by providing forestry expertise, trees, supplies, and planting event coordination for neighborhood groups. TreeVitalize Pittsburgh also accepts applications for community parks and trails, and for restoration plantings.
The TreeVitalize Pittsburgh program’s street tree plantings help the Conservancy and its partners meet the goals of the City 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 maintain and increase street tree populations. With the help of volunteers and partners, we do this work through new plantings, replacing trees that have been removed because of age or health reasons, and filling vacant tree planting sites.
TreeVitalize Pittsburgh applications are being accepted now through December 15, 2021, for the spring 2022 tree planting season. Before submitting your application for consideration, you must first contact Jeff Bergman, director of TreeVitalize Pittsburgh and community forestry for WPC, by October 15, 2021.
Jeff can provide more in-depth information about the application process and will send the digital application to you. Contact Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-586-2396. To apply for TreeVitalize Pittsburgh, you must be an Allegheny County resident.
We encourage all residents from across the region to plant more trees! If you live outside of Allegheny County and wish to apply for trees for your community, please contact the statewide TreeVitalize grant program, managed by TreePennsylvania, for more information and to receive an application.
