The large venue offers us plenty of space indoors and outside on the patio where you can mingle with your friends along with our staff, supporters, and corporate sponsors. As a memento of the evening, each guest will receive a commemorative gift for Root Ball 2022.

Growing Together in Community


Let’s celebrate the work we have accomplished together. Let’s look ahead at what we can do together.

In 2022, we reached a new milestone of 150,000 tree planted in metro Atlanta and continued to grow and expand the reach of our conservation and education programs. We are growing with and in new communties. This year marks another major milestone of growth for Trees Atlanta. Guest will hear and see updates on the construction of our new Headquarters in Oakland City, our Capital Campaign, and the special tree naming opportunities at our headquarters.

At Root Ball, we honor the incredible support that comes from our growing community by awarding five Trees Atlanta Tree Champions for 2022 for their extraordinary history of teamwork and dedication to Trees Atlanta and our city’s urban canopy. 

We can’t wait to see you! Let’s gather together at Root Ball 2022.
