People for Trees™

Make a difference in your own backyard.

It takes a village to help the forest.

Within the first year of the People for Trees campaign, more than 1,000 Northeast Ohioans pledged to plant more than 4,000 trees in our neighborhoods.

In addition, Holden Forests & Gardens has planted more than 1,400 trees with the help of our community partners. This is great momentum, but we’re just getting started.

Make the People for Trees pledge today, and your community will reap the benefits in the years to come! (Plus, we’ll be here to provide resources and support along the way.)  

To help you get started with all things tree, we have information kits that’ll answer the most common questions:

  • Which trees are best to plant in Northeast Ohio?  
  • Where do I purchase my tree? 
  • When and where should I plant it?  
  • How do I take care of it? 
  • Please enter a number from 1 to 10.
