Tree Pitts­burgh believes that every­one has a right to enjoy trees and the phys­i­cal, men­tal, and social ben­e­fits they pro­vide. Pitts­burgh has an over­all tree canopy of 42%, but this cov­er is not equal­ly dis­trib­uted. The ReLeaf Pro­gram is a nec­es­sary step to rec­ti­fy these dis­crep­an­cies and ensure all res­i­dents expe­ri­ence the ben­e­fits of a thriv­ing urban for­est. We con­cen­trate our efforts on neigh­bor­hoods with insuf­fi­cient tree canopy — which leads to height­ened sum­mer tem­per­a­tures exac­er­bat­ed by heat island chal­lenges, com­pro­mised air qual­i­ty, and local­ized flood­ing or stormwa­ter runoff issues.

In col­lab­o­ra­tion with res­i­dents, local orga­ni­za­tions, munic­i­pal­i­ties, and oth­er gov­ern­ment enti­ties, the ReLeaf pro­gram pro­duces a neigh­bor­hood-lev­el mini-urban for­est plan tai­lored to each com­mu­ni­ty’s unique situation.
