Planting a tree is as good for you as it is for the planet.
Help spread the benefits of trees to all Delawareans.
From digging the hole to standing back and admiring your own hard work, the entire process of planting a tree is physically, mentally, and emotionally beneficial. The benefits of more tree cover and its impact on our environment and community are enormous. Simply put, your single act of digging in the dirt can have positive impacts for generations.
The Delaware Center for Horticulture has strategically planted 18,148 urban trees: an average of over 400 trees per year in areas where their benefits have the most impact. As one of our core greening efforts, DCH’s Community Forestry program partners with cities, neighborhoods, businesses and volunteers to plant trees where they are needed most. As we experience the impacts of climate change from rising temperatures to storms and floods, investing in our tree infrastructure has never been more important than right now.
Your contribution* to DCH’s 2022 Do More 24 campaign will support our efforts to plant more trees and spread their benefits to everyone in Delaware for decades to come.
