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.

If you are interested in applying to TreeVitalize Pittsburgh please contact Jeff Bergman, director of community forestry and TreeVitalize Pittsburgh, at 412-586-2396 or Please note that submitting an application does not guarantee your group will receive trees; funding for seasonal plantings is limited.

The application round for fall 2021 is now open until June 1, 2021. All applications are currently web based and will be sent via email once contact with Jeff Bergman has been made.

In order to apply for Tree Vitalize Pittsburgh, you must be an Allegheny County Resident. If you currently live outside Allegheny County, please see the TreeVitalize statewide program.
