Like our trees, Trees Lexington! is always working towards meaningful growth. We do this by developing and executing projects that aim to incorporate trees and their value into various different community interests. These projects are all funded by local & national grants, sponsorships, & community donations.
LET'S PLANT 200 TREES FOR JAKE!
Lexington, Fall 2020
There has been such a wonderful outpouring of love since the passing for our friend and the co-founder of Trees Lexington!, Jake Gibbs. It was his passion to get trees in the ground, so we are doing just that.
With the precautions that need to be taken because of Covid-19 we had to think on our toes and get innovative! At Trees Lexington! we decided to put a twist on our original tree giveaway and made it a drive-thru tree giveaway. To get as many trees in the ground as possible we hope for support towards future giveaways - continuing Jake's legacy.
If you would like to support this event contact us for details about volunteering or feel free to donate to help fund the next giveaway!
THE POCKET NURSERY
Happening all around Lexington!
The Pocket Nursery is a program designed by arborists & approved by local homeowners. It puts the power (and the fun!) of growing trees into the hands of local residents while also providing reliable, high-quality education from local tree care professionals, every step of the way.
NEIGHBORHOOD TREE PLANTINGS
Trees Lexington! is leading projects in neighborhoods across Lexington to provide the coordination and resources necessary for both public and private property tree plantings.
TREES + RESEARCH
Local Schools & Universities
Trees act as excellent bridges between the social and natural sciences. Trees Lexington! is working with Frederick Douglas High School to build academic research opportunities for urban foresters and soil scientists that will contribute to experiential learning opportunities for students and community members alike.
