Urbanized Townships: Increase Tree Cover with TreeVitalize Grants

Thursday April 4th, 2019
Upcoming Webinars Explain Program
 
TreePennsylvania, an independent nonprofit agency, manages the statewide TreeVitalize grant program. Funding is provided by the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to promote and develop sustainable urban forestry programs.
 
Annual grants provide funding in three priority areas: tree planting, urban riparian buffers, and community forestry management.
 
Tree-planting grants help municipalities plant trees in community and urban areas along streets, parks, and other publicly accessible areas.
 
Urban riparian buffer grants help municipalities plant forested buffers along community and urban waterways.
 
Community forestry management grants help finance tree care management plans; tree inventories; pruning; short-term employment, including internships; educational workshops and webinars; urban wood use; ordinance development; land banks design; urban agriculture design; and other aspects of urban forestry.
 
Priority is given to projects that:
• involve partnerships and include training/educational components;
• enhance the public’s access to and enjoyment of urban forestry; and/or
• are implemented in environmental justice areas (any census tract where 20 percent or more of the population lives in poverty and/or 30 percent or more of the population is minority).
