Our Vision:

To spur positive ACTION for trees & forests that will enhance our community’s health, equity, biodiversity, and resilience in this era of rapid climate change.

Our Three-Pronged Mission To Accomplish The Above:

Within Whatcom County, we…
• PLANT the right native tree seedlings in the right places — in public-purposed lands that other entities do not restore.
• PROTECT mature trees in urban neighborhoods and key watersheds via policy improvements, development advocacy, increased awareness, and the removal of tree-killing invasives.
• CONNECT people together in hands-on positive action outdoors and at special events that highlight the multifaceted value of trees and forests.
