Trees are planted in South Louisville for the UofL Green Heart Project, an ongoing assessment of the effects of neighborhood greenness on individual health

Calling all volunteers as we wrap up our fall season of tree plantings after an amazing start with over 100 volunteers helping us plant over 100 trees on October 23rd!

We are on track to plant 2000 trees with Louisville Grows by the end of the year!

Help us increase the tree canopy in neighborhoods most impacted by the urban heat island effect.

This planting will focus on the Taylor-Berry, Jacobs, Hazelwood, Beechmont, Oakdale, and Wilder Park neighborhoods in South Louisville.

This tree planting is in partnership with UofL’s Green Heart project, a first of its kind multi-year study. By taking a closer look at the relationship we have with our neighborhood trees and their affect on our mental and physical health, we can continue to grow greener, healthier neighborhoods.

Thank you to our sponsors: Louisville Grows, UPS, Arbor Day Foundation, The Nature Conservancy Kentucky and U of L Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute.

Please contact Charlie at or 502-655-9830 with any questions or concerns.
