“Founded in 1985, Trees Atlanta works to mitigate Atlanta’s tree loss, protect its forests, and increase its tree canopy. Empowered by a community of volunteers, Trees Atlanta serves the metro Atlanta area and has grown to become one of Atlanta’s most widely known and supported non-profit organizations.”
I’m excited to see Trees Atlanta’s new campus, having both of my parents as landscape architects, I’ve been lucky to witness all the incredible things they do as an organization (including planting over 140,000 trees). Trees Atlanta is moving forward with the demolition of an old bakery in Oakland City (on a connector to the Westside BeltLine trail). They’re preparing for groundbreaking to build their new headquarters in the coming weeks, which will include two buildings, a smaller operations building and a larger main building for offices, classrooms, rentable event space and more.
