ReLeaf Neighborhood Plans and Updates Released
Tree Pittsburgh is pleased to announce the release of a ReLeaf plan for Greater Hazelwood and “How Are We Doing?” updates for the already-existing ReLeaf Lawrenceville and ReLeaf Manchester & Chateau plans.
ReLeaf is a planning process and program that brings support to the urban canopy on a neighborhood-level scale. We work with low-canopy neighborhoods that want to chart a path toward a greener community. Together, we create a neighborhood-level plan for growing the community’s urban forest, including tree planting, young tree care, and education to ensure long-term success.
The ReLeaf plan has four steps: What do we have?, What do we want?, How do we get there?, and How are we doing?.
Tree Pittsburgh began working with Greater Hazelwood in 2021. In 2019, residents outlined a desire to increase the tree canopy throughout the neighborhood and strengthen the quality of the community’s green spaces. Tree Pittsburgh, Hazelwood Initiative Inc., and other partners worked together to analyze existing data, host meetings, conduct public surveys, and create neighborhood goals to create the neighborhood’s first ReLeaf plan.

In 2014, Tree Pittsburgh worked with residents and local stakeholders to create the first neighborhood-level urban forest master plan, ReLeaf Lawrenceville. Tree Pittsburgh staff again worked with the Lawrenceville community to provide an update to the plan, How Are We Doing, in 2022.

In 2014, Tree Pittsburgh worked with residents and local stakeholders to create a neighborhood-level urban forest master plan, ReLeaf Manchester & Chateau. Tree Pittsburgh staff again worked with the Manchester & Chateau communities to provide an update to the plan, How Are We Doing, in 2022.
