800 trees planted in a single weekend in all 12 City of Atlanta Council Districts
Our most ambitious Plantlanta tree count – ever!
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
The 2021 goal is 800 trees, the highest tree count in Plantlanta history!
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.
- Projects sites and volunteer opportunities are scheduled for Friday, November 5 and Saturday, November 6.
- 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.

Trees Protect Atlanta’s Watersheds
The 2021 Plantlanta planting sites are significant due to their position in critical watersheds in Atlanta, especially sites near impaired waterways. Impaired waterways are bodies of water that are too polluted or otherwise degraded to meet standards set by local, state, or federal agencies.
