About National NeighborWoods® Month
National NeighborWoods® Month is Alliance for Community Trees’ annual campaign to plant and care for community trees during the month of October. Each year, tens of thousands of volunteers take action to make their communities greener and healthier by planting trees—turning their neighborhoods into vibrant, livable communities. Over the last decade, more than 235,000 volunteers have planted over 425,000 trees in all 50 US states and Canada during National NeighborWoods® Month. Thank you to everyone who made the 2014 campaign a resounding success!
Alliance for Community Trees launched the NeighborWoods® program in 2005 as a national initiative to support local tree planting organizations and their efforts to make neighborhoods cleaner, greener and healthier. NeighborWoods® has since delivered over $1 million in grants to local greening groups and municipalities. In partnership with The Home Depot Foundation, NeighborWoods® grants were awarded to support strategic tree planting to improve the health and livability of affordable housing communities. These projects enhanced the home environment of families across the country.
