Trees provide a myriad of benefits to our environment, including combating climate change, cleaning our air, preventing soil erosion, and reducing storm run-off and the possibility of flooding. Tree Pittsburgh is an environmental non-profit dedicated to protecting and enhancing our urban forest through community tree planting and care, education, and advocacy.
