Over 35 years later, Baton Rouge Green’s laser-focused mission – to advocate for, plant and protect our community trees – is more relevant and critical than ever before.
These days our pursuit of this mission takes many forms. We actively maintain thousands of trees along major roadways and in community green spaces for the benefit of all citizens. We constantly work to raise awareness about the importance of trees as critical infrastructure. We introduce children to their first tree planting experience, and teach them why and how to advocate for trees. You can also find our team helping underserved populations gain access to more trees and community green spaces, and even cultivating urban orchards to provide healthy, fresh food sources closer to home.
In today’s world there are few tools at our disposal that are as cost-effective, impactful and multi-purpose as trees. We plant and care for our community trees for a better tomorrow, and for the generations that will follow us. Join us. PLANT IT FORWARD.
