Friday & Saturday, November 4 – 5, 2022
2022 is our seventh year of Plantlanta, our single largest planting project in neighborhoods across all 12 City Council Districts of Atlanta. The planting goal for Plantlanta 2022 is 650 new trees planted in two days! Volunteers are needed. We hope you join us.
Plantlanta activates neighborhoods and engages neighbors with Trees Atlanta staff, volunteers, and Atlanta City Council Members and city leaders to plant trees in all 12 city council districts in a single weekend! This citywide collaboration reflects the City of Atlanta’s commitment to planting trees for all across our City in the Forest.
Plant Trees + Atlanta = Plantlanta
First conceived in 2016, Plantlanta is an annual event that is an exciting, scaled-up version of our weekly community forestry projects. During no other single weekend do we plant more trees than at Plantlanta.
We hope you can join us at one of the planting locations listed below. Everyone is welcome, bring a friend and be part of this fun event. To ensure greater social distancing and safety precautions we are continuing to adhere to public safety protocols.
- Volunteer group size is limited, so REGISTRATION IS MANDATORY prior to event day. See project lists by day below.
- All participants will be required to follow safety guidelines.
