Tree care is important to a healthy urban forest. Community volunteers from coast to coast, led by ACTrees, can strengthen community bonds and help spread the importance and knowledge of how to care for trees. In October, ACTrees invites you to be part of the special 10th Anniversary of National NeighborWoods® Month this October. Register your events, volunteer in your area, or donate to support community trees. An ACTrees supporter will match donations made in honor of the 10th Anniversary, so donate now to double the impact! Learn more and ask questions on #Treechat.
