People for Trees™

Plant a tree in 2024.

We are in year four of our People for Trees campaign. Already, more than 10,000 trees have been given away, pledged, and planted by residents of Northeast Ohio. That’s amazing, but we need your help to reach 15,000 by 2025.

Holden Forests and Gardens’ People for Trees encourages residents in urban and rural communities to plant and care for a tree beginning with making a pledge. We will support each pledge with easy-to-follow instructional toolkits, guidance on how to select the most appropriate tree and where to purchase it, free virtual classes and other ongoing support.
