The TreeVitalize program aims to increase tree canopy cover throughout Pennsylvania
communities while building citizen appreciation and support for sustaining urban forests. Research has repeatedly shown a direct link between the presence of trees and the quality of life. Trees help to capture storm water and reduce runoff, improve water quality, improve air quality, reduce urban heat island effects, beautify communities, increase property values, reduce heating and cooling costs and improve human health. The program offers grants to communities and non-profit organizations to offset the cost of establishing new trees with the involvement of community residents.

DCNR’s goals for TreeVitalize are to:
 Help to build effective urban forest management programs in all of the state’s 2565
 Train community volunteers & municipal workers to assist in the planting and early
care of trees; and
 Build community capacity for the long term management of urban forests.
