Plantlanta 2023: Something Special to Discover
Join us for Plantlanta 2023
Friday & Saturday, November 3 – 4, 2023
Across the City of Atlanta, 12 Planting Projects in 12 City Council Districts
Hundreds of Volunteers to Plant 800 Trees Across Atlanta in One Weekend
2023 is our eighth year of Plantlanta, our single largest planting project in neighborhoods across all 12 City Council Districts of Atlanta.
Everywhere you go, there’s something special to discover about the neighborhoods of Atlanta. Plantlanta takes you to locations you know well, as well as spots you’ve haven’t explored yet. Where ever we go, we find (or plant) beautiful trees and meet great people. If you’re looking for something special, take a look at our project list and find something special that sparks your fancy.
You can be a part of Plantlanta 2023 by signing up for a project site today! Invite a friend to join you. Introducing others to new communities across Atlanta and to the power of community forestry is a key benefit of Plantlanta.
