Conserve the 4-0-FOREST

Conserve the 4-0-Forest is our new volunteer event promoting restoration work and community engagement in all 12 districts of Atlanta over two days. This event emphasizes the importance of removing invasive plant species that threaten the health of trees and our urban ecosystem.

These projects put learning and action into practice. Let’s protect our trees and native plants in greenspaces, forested areas, public parks, the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum, and residential yards and properties. Together, we can build upon our strong sense of community and empower stewardship in these spaces.


The Second Annual Conserve the 4-0-Forest will be on on April 21st and 22nd, 2023. Check back soon for the new 4-0-Forest Project locations !

Get a Head Start

Join us for virtual Lunch and Learn: Invasive Species on Thurs., June 9 at noon – 1 pm.

Learn about the impact of invasive species on our urban forest with this kick-off event for the Conserve the 4-0-Forest weekend.  Along with the history of restoration work at Trees Atlanta and the different neighborhoods we are actively working with to restore the native plants of their community, our Director of Urban Forestry, Brian Williams, and our Forest Restoration Manager, Taryn Heidel, will review the Big 5 invasive plant species that we remove to mitigate their impact.

You can remove them from your backyard, neighborhood, or local park – come learn how.
