25-WORD DESCRIPTION:

We plant Nebraska for healthy people, vibrant communities, and a resilient environment. We do this through tree planting, garden making, and education.


HOW WE USE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS:

  • $10 provides a seedling tree.
  • $100 pays for an educational talk.
  • $150 provides a Bloom Box garden.


A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

Statewide, Trees for Nebraska Towns mini-grants (Free Trees for Fall Planting) has continued to be an extremely effective planting and outreach efforts, just completing its sixth year. Through this program, up to 10 trees are awarded for community projects in exchange for an outreach effort such as educational workshops and volunteer plantings. The small project size and simple expectations make it easier for small and/or inexperienced groups to take on a project, reaching a new and wider audience to encourage tree-planting. This fall’s effort reached 46 communities, getting over 500 trees planted in 64 projects all across the state.
