Trees and green infrastructure are essential to creating and maintaining healthy, sustainable and economically viable communities. As such we engage public policy professionals and decision makers to ensure that policies and plans intended to guide the District’s growth also protect the city’s fragile urban forest.

You can impact the greening of D.C. Find people – your neighbors, coworkers, agency staff and elected officials – and start a conversation about the importance of protecting and investing in our tree canopy. We have developed a rich collection of educational resources to help you frame your comments and for you to share with others.
