Chatham County loses trees each year to severe storms, new development, an aging tree canopy, and improper tree care. The most effective way to combat long-term tree loss is to plant new trees! Savannah Tree Foundation has planted over 4,000 trees since its founding and is committed to planting thousands more.
PLANT A TREE!
right tree, right place
The key to a successful tree planting is to make sure you plant the Right Tree in the Right Place. With a little research and planning, you can choose the perfect tree for your space. Read our Right Tree, Right Place handout and browse our list of local trees to learn what trees may be right for your property.
Savannah Tree Foundation encourages you to plant trees on your own property! During planting season (November-March), be on the lookout for our tree sales and giveaways across Chatham County. Sign up for our newsletter to keep up-to-date on events!
