Helping Louisville Grow
Louisville Grows provides urban forestry training to build community capacity in urban forest management and stewardship and organizes tree-planting events to assist with the reforestation of Louisville’s neighborhoods. Louisville Grows works to educate the public on the benefits of an urban forest, organizes with neighborhood coordinators to develop annual tree planting and maintenance events, and provides trees to areas in our community with low tree canopy levels. Through community engagement, citizens are trained in proper tree selection, planting and on-going maintenance. We understand that for an urban forestry program to be effective we must engage and recruit students, residents, business owners, and all members of our community to take ownership of our urban forest. Since it's creation; Louisville Grows has successfully planted over 2,100 trees with a survival rate of 90% for our plantings.
The project trees are planted throughout Louisville, KY in local community gardens and along Louisville streets.
