Grants Help Townships Increase Tree Cover

Monday July 10th, 2017
Townships that want to increase the tree cover in their community can apply for grants from the TreeVitalize Program, administered by TreePennsylvania, the commonwealth’s Urban and Community Forestry Council.
 
TreeVitalize planting grants are available for projects with a strong volunteer base. Funding is available for tree planting, community forest management, and urban riparian buffers.
 
Interested townships should begin by contacting their local DCNR or Extension forester, who can provide necessary guidance about grant opportunities, as well as native species and sustainable projects.
 
Applications must be submitted by email or postal mail by August 15.
