making the Valley a shadier place, one tree at a time
Working in conjunction with the Salt River Project (SRP) utilities company, we distribute thousands of free desert-adapted shade trees to SRP customers across the Valley. Participants can receive up to two free trees after attending a workshop where they learn how to plant and care for their new shade trees. By the end of each year, we distribute 5,000 trees and educate over 4,000 Valley residents.
Locations for workshops and tree distributions vary each month in order to reach as many customers across the Valley as possible. To view dates and locations for all upcoming shade tree events, view our events calendar here.
