Whether you’re looking to add shade, beauty, or ecological benefits to your property, our knowledgeable team will be available to help you select the perfect tree for your needs, you’ll also receive guidance on proper planting techniques and tree care. Trees play a vital role in improving air quality, reducing stormwater runoff, providing habitat for wildlife, and enhancing the overall health and well-being of our communities. By participating in the tree giveaway, you’ll contribute to a greener and more resilient Boston.

Mark your calendars and join us at Mass Audubon’s Boston Nature Center for our final FREE tree giveaway of the spring. Together, we can make a positive impact on our environment and create a more sustainable future.

Mattapan is listed as an EJ (environmental justice) community, where tree canopy coverage is at an inequitable level in comparison to other areas in Boston.  At Speak for the Trees, 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 all Boston neighborhoods.
