About Us

Trees. Magnificent, majestic and absolutely essential to life and to the splendor of the Baton Rouge area's landscape. In an urban area, they clean and cool the air, buffer sound and wind, offer animal habitats and shade & beautify our environment. These are just of few of the compelling reasons to support Baton Rouge Green. Because today, for every four trees destroyed, only one is replaced.

The Mission of Baton Rouge Green
Baton Rouge Green is a non-profit organization dedicated to the enhancement of our urban forest by inspiring the residents of the greater Baton Rouge area to conserve, plant and sustain our community’s trees.

A Cause You Can Root For
Founded in 1987, Baton Rouge Green has planted over 35,000 trees at schools, in parks, in neighborhoods, and along our roadways.  This work would not be possible without the help of hard-working volunteers and the generous financial support of private citizens and businesses.
