Celebrate National Neighborwoods Month This October

Revitalize your community with a National NeighborWoods Month project!

National NeighborWoods Month is an annual campaign to plant and care for community trees during the month of October. To celebrate, thousands of volunteers organize events each year to make their communities greener and healthier by planting and caring for local trees.

This event is promoted by Alliance for Community Trees (ACTrees), a national network of more than 200 organizations engaged in urban and community forestry. ACTrees is also a program of the Arbor Day Foundation, which is known for facilitating and promoting Arbor Day events throughout the country each spring.

“Having local organizations participate in National NeighborWoods Month shows that people all across the country care deeply about living in green, tree-filled communities,” said Arbor Day Foundation president Dan Lambe in a press release. To date, ACTrees organizations have planted and cared for more than 15 million trees with help from more than 5 million volunteers.
