Trees Atlanta

Trees Atlanta is a non-profit organization in Atlanta, Georgia, United States that seeks to preserve and protect the city's trees. The group employs a full-time staff of tree-care professionals and maintains an extensive network of volunteers, who work together to enrich the city's quality of life through both beautification and improved air quality.

The group's main activities include planting new trees and saplings throughout the city, maintaining the health of the city's existing tree cover, restoring and conserving large tracts of urban greenspace and educating the public about the importance of trees.

Since being founded in 1985 as a business-district beautification organization, Trees Atlanta has planted and distributed over 68,000 shade trees.cite web |url=http://www.treesatlanta.org/aboutus.html |title= About Us|accessdate=2007-09-13 |work=TreesAtlanta.org |publisher=Trees Atlanta ] The organization relies on its regular volunteer base of over 800 to plant and maintain trees throughout Atlanta (inside I-285).

In 2007, Trees Atlanta was given $US $350,000 to plant the first mile of a proposed twenty-two mile urban arboreteum.cite news |first=Maria |last=Saporta |title=Blank Foundation helps keep Beltline in the shade |url=http://www.ajc.com/business/content/business/saporta/stories/2007/09/09/saporta_0910.html |work= The Atlanta Journal-Constitution|publisher=Cox Enterprises|date=2007-09-10 |accessdate=2007-09-13 ]
