Since 1991 we have cared for thousands of trees along major roadways and interstates in the Baton Rouge area via cooperative agreements with the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development and the East Baton Rouge Parish Department of Public Works.
Urban trees require monitoring and care. Our trees regularly need pruning, weed prevention, fertilizing, mulching, and irrigation to successfully mature in challenging environments. Maintaining over 4,000 trees takes resources. Baton Rouge Green receives no public funds to maintain these trees. Local citizens, businesses and industry provide the funds for 100% of this program.
Living Roadways represents the best of our community – a privately supported effort which improves the public spaces we experience each and every day.
Sponsorship of Living Roadways can range from $1,500 to $10,000 annually and gifts are tax-deductible. Baton Rouge Green recognizes these partners by displaying their logos on:
- Roadway signs, like those pictured here
- Multiple pages on BatonRuugeGreen.com
- Our quarterly E-Leaflet newsletter
- On signage at Baton Rouge Green events
