Trees in somerville

Increased tree canopy means cleaner air and water, cooler temperatures and happier people! You can read more about the benefits of trees here. Over the next year we will plant 100 trees in Somerville, using volunteers, and implement a volunteer tree watering program. Younger trees need to be watered more frequently because their limited root systems can't reach water underground--volunteer to water, and help establish a tree that will be here for generations!

We're currently working to keep all trees watered and making plans to plant 35 trees this November. Sign up below to receive information about tree planting events—dates, times, locations coming soon!
