Tree Fund

Plant a tree in the parks and establish a legacy for generations to come.

“He that plants trees loves others beside himself.” – Thomas Fuller

Why plant a tree in Pittsburgh's parks?

  • In tribute of someone you respect, love, or admire
  • To celebrate a birth, birthday, or marriage
  • In recognition of a life change, or achievement
  • As a gesture of community service
  • In memory of someone who has passed away
