One Million Trees Initiative
The One Million Trees Initiative is an exciting collaboration of 10 metro Atlanta cities and 10 Atlanta-based nonprofits working together to fight local climate change and environmental stresses from urban growth.
With combined efforts, our goal is to plant and save one million trees across metro Atlanta by 2030.
The one million count will include trees planted on city land, for public projects, preserved in forested areas, and installed by individuals on private property, such as residential yards and businesses.
