Adopt a Tree

Urban forests are street trees and other vegetation that provide green spaces within an urban setting. Urban forests provide immense beauty to cities, as well as many benefits for people and nature. Invasive tree pests threaten the health of our urban forests.
Help protect your urban forests and adopt a tree to monitor for signs of invasive pests.
