Applying to TreeVitalize
TreeVitalize Pittsburgh currently supports street tree plantings within the City of Pittsburgh by providing forestry expertise, trees, supplies, and planting event coordination for neighborhood groups.
The TreeVitalize Pittsburgh program’s street tree plantings help the Conservancy and its partners meet the goals 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 increase the street tree population. 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.
The spring 2019 TreeVitalize application is available for community tree plantings in Allegheny County (excluding the City of Pittsburgh).
All applications are due by 4 p.m. on Friday, December 14, 2018 in order to be considered for spring 2019 community plantings.
In order for your application to be considered, you must contact Jeff Bergman, director of community forestry and TreeVitalize Pittsburgh, at 412-586-2396 or email@example.com, prior to submitting an application. Please note that submitting an application does not guarantee your group will receive trees; funding for seasonal plantings is limited.
