Tree Pittsburgh is an environmental non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the City's vitality by restoring and protecting the urban forest through tree maintenance, planting, education and advocacy.
Our vision is to be a leader in creating a healthy, attractive and safe urban forest by inspiring and engaging citizens to plant, maintain and protect trees. Trees provide substantial environmental, social and economic benefits that greatly enhance our quality of life.
There is so much to learn about trees - how to maintain them, protect them, to speak on their behalf. This website is designed to equip you with the knowledge necessary to assist Tree Pittsburgh in meeting our mission to protect and maintain our precious urban forest.
Look in the menu in the sidebar at right for a selection of specific tree-related topics. More are being added regularly, so check back often!

Government is a slow and tedious process. While it often includes citizen and neighborhood involvement, non-governmental, private organizations have created movements and interesting groups which can create positive change in our cities and towns.
I am fascinated by the way groups are created and how they influence public decision making. This blog merely recognizes them and forwards the description of these groups from their own websites.
