TreesGreenville is membership based 501 c 3 founded in 2005.  Our mission is to plant, promote, and protect trees in Greenville County.  TreesGreenville volunteers have helped plant over 3000 trees and logged over 7500 hours.

TreesGreenville plantings are funded by grants, memberships, donations, honorariums & memorials, the Turkey Day 8k, and our Annual ReLeaf Party.

Proceeds from the Turkey Day 8k will help plant over 400 trees this year throughout Greenville County.  

  • At maturity, 400 trees will remove the equivalent of up to 4,400,000 million miles of car emissions, EACH YEAR.

Where do we plant?  Parks, schools, and neighborhoods throughout Greenville County.

What do we plant?  The majority of the trees we plant are 15 gallon trees.  They are urban hardy and mostly native species.  

When do we plant? We plant most Saturday mornings October - March.  Each planting begins with a workshop to teach volunteers how to properly root prune, plant, mulch, and water.  Our plantings are family friendly.  Our volunteer schedule is on our website, www.treesgreenville.org. 

What are our favorite trees?  Trees that will live 100 years or more and benefit generations yet to come.  We call them Legacy Trees:  i.e., Oaks, Maples, Elm, Hickory, Tulip Poplar, Black Tupelo, Magnolia (click here to view a list).  

How do I properly plant and mulch a tree?  Thank you for asking!  You can learn more here.

How can I help?  Become a member. Volunteer. Make a donation. Plant a tree in your own yard and be part of 10,000 trees in 10 years.
