Program Information:

Trees Columbus is an environmental non-profit organization founded in 2000. Since then, we have led the effort to protect Columbus' urban tree canopy. We have since planted over 13,000 trees, enacted forestry educational programs & engaged Columbus residents with tree walks & fun events.
Trees Columbus is working with our partners at Natural Resource Consulting to develop a Comprehensive Tree Management System to help Trees Columbus and the Columbus Consolidated Government manage the planting, maintenance and risks of our urban forest. The goals of the project are:
- Improve the condition of tree canopy in our community
- Make our community safer
- Develop a system that is practical and can be maintained well into the future
- Reduce clean-up after storm events
- Ensure that we have a healthy urban forest for future generations
- Promote Columbus by having one of the most dynamic urban forest programs in the country
