Mission Statement

The mission of Speak for the Trees, Boston is to improve the size and health of Boston’s urban forest especially in under-resourced and under-canopied neighborhoods.

Description

We work at the community level to educate residents about trees and to plant, and care for trees on public and private property. Our work serves to provide more equitable access to the many social, environmental, and economic benefits that trees provide while simultaneously increasing climate resiliency, reducing carbon output, and expanding carbon storage capacity within Boston. We run educational and community outreach programs, including our Teen Urban Tree Corps, a citywide tree inventory project, and conduct tree giveaway and planting programs with the help of our volunTREErs in Boston. Working alongside local organizations and residents allows us to effectively advocate for updated municipal policies and tree plantings that facilitate a healthier, larger, and more equitable urban forest that reflects the diverse backgrounds and values of all Boston’s residents.
