making the Valley a shadier place, one tree at a time
Working in conjunction with the Salt River Project (SRP) utilities company, we distribute thousands of free desert-adapted shade trees to SRP customers across the Valley. Participants can receive up to two free trees after attending a workshop where they learn how to plant and care for their new shade trees. By the end of each year, we distribute over 5,000 trees and educate over 4,000 Valley residents.
Locations for workshops and tree distributions vary each month in order to reach as many customers across the Valley as possible. To view dates and locations for all upcoming shade tree events, view our events calendar here.

Events occur once every month, between March- November. Along with staff, it requires over 40 volunteers to make this program and thee events successful! We give out hundreds of trees per event, and educate hundreds of participants per event as well. Below are photos from events throughout various seasons...
