Local Enhancement & Appreciation of Forests

LEAF is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of the urban forest. We offer programs that help you plant, care and give.

Plant!

Our Backyard Tree Planting Program offers native trees and shrubs to property owners at a subsidized cost.

Our arborists will help you make an educated decision about the type of tree that best suits your property. Find out which one of our programs is right for you!
