Trees are planted in South Louisville for the UofL Green Heart Project, an ongoing assessment of the effects of neighborhood greenness on individual healthUofL's Green Heart Project and Louisville Grows need YOU to join our tree planting team! Dig in and help us restore the urban tree canopy in our neighborhoods.

No experience is necessary, everyone is welcome to come play in the dirt with us. Trained Citizen Foresters will be there to lead you in proper tree planting!

All volunteers must be fully vaccinated and wearing a mask is mandatory. Any person 12 years of age or younger must be accompanied at a 1:1 ratio by a parent or guardian.

Lunch will not be served, but snacks will be provided

Please dress appropriately for the weather. You'll be digging in dirt and handling mulch, so wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. Closed-toed shoes are required and long sleeve shirts are recommended for handling evergreen trees. Waterproof outerwear is suggested if rain is forecast. We will plant trees come rain or shine.  If severe weather is expected, you will be notified about an alternate event date.

This planting is in partnership with Green Heart Louisville, a research study being conducted by UofL's Envirome Institute. The project is the first controlled experiment to test if increasing green space and infrastructure in a neighborhood improves air quality and human health with the goal of developing a “greenprint” for creating healthier neighborhoods.
