Bringing Tree Equity to Boston

Our mission is to celebrate, preserve, and plant trees in Boston.

We work at the intersection of environmental justice, racial and social equity, public health, and climate change to advocate for a healthy and equitable urban forest in Boston.

    “In my 44 years as an urban designer, I’m working with an arborist for the first time. The advocacy work of Speak for the Trees has helped me see the world and my work in new ways. Thanks!”
