Tree Canopy Committee

Dilworth's tree canopy is aging and we are losing a great number of mature shade trees.  Join us in our mission to preserve, protect, and plant trees in Dilworth. If you would like to get involved with this group, email express@dilworthonline.org .

Each year, for the past 3 years, we have organized a fundraiser to Share the Shade with the objective of planting more trees in Dilworth and giving a portion of the money raised in the campaigns to a nearby neighborhood with fewer funding resources to help with their tree canopy. To date we have added almost 100 trees to the Dilworth streets and have given money to the Revolution Park neighborhood to help with their top priority of tree maintenance.

The Tree Canopy Committee has several initiatives that are designed to improve Dilworth's tree canopy and to share the shade with other neighbors.

 

These programs are:

  • The Tree Tribute gifting program - "give the gift of trees". For more information, click here.

  • Share the Shade fundraising campaign. This campaign kicks off in the Fall, but we welcome donations for our Share the Shade campaign throughout the year. You can donate today by clicking here.

Our Vision

Our vision is to educate neighbors about how to keep trees healthy and safe, and to see the old and sickly trees replaced and encourage the planting of appropriate new trees so that future Dilworth generations will enjoy the benefits and beauty of a healthy and vibrant tree canopy.
