Our Community Forestry program gives neighbors the opportunity to plant, collaboratively raise support and care for trees in the neighborhood. Trees create a beautiful, healthy, and safe environment for Indy residents.
They improve the natural environment with their aesthetics, and they help produce clean air and water. Research also shows that trees help to reduce crime and foster more sociable neighborhoods. In inner-city neighborhoods, the greener the residence, the lower the crime rate.
