Friends of Trees has been involved in many projects over the years. Here are some of our recent achievements.
Educational Grant Program
The purpose of the grant is to support teachers and non-profit organizations interested in undertaking educational efforts related to the science and value of trees. Grants will be awarded for projects that promote education, research and public awareness of the value of trees; promote sound ecological horticultural practices; or other projects consistent with Friends of Trees’ mission.
Tree City USA
Friends of Trees is proud of our role in assisting the Town of Chatham with its successful application for its designation as a Tree City USA.
Cockle Cove Creek Headwaters Reforestation
In 2013 Friends of Trees supported the Cockle Cove Creek Headwaters Reforestation Project with a donation of 45 large trees. The property (former site of the Pit Stop restaurant) was purchased by the Town of Chatham for open space with Community Preservation Act funds. Reforestation will create a continuous green corridor along this stretch of Main Street, while restoring wildlife habitat and protecting water quality by stabilizing soils and absorbing excess nutrients.
