Participating in this program gives you or your group the opportunity to join a community of treekeepers around the Bluegrass, who recognize the benefits and beauty that trees provide us.

The majority of the urban trees in Lexington are on private property. This includes all of the homes and businesses in our community. Promoting the beauty and benefits of our urban trees is a group effort. The tree in your yard benefits us both. The trees in all of our yards make up the urban forest. A healthy urban forest is a real possibility, one that starts with awareness of its benefits by us, the community.
