Mission: To make baton rouge greener by educating, leading, and inspiring our community to conserve, plant, and sustain trees.
Programs: As part of the national neighborwoods program, baton rouge green selects one environmentally-underserved neighborhoods each year throughout the city of baton rouge for tree plantings, held during tree planting season - october through march. Partnering with neighborhood organizations, residents, and volunteers, baton rouge green shares information and technical assistance about planting and maintaining trees, empowering local citizens to implement tree planting and maintenance programs in their neighborhoods.
baton rouge green has planted thousands of trees at medians and intersections along baton rouge's highly traveled roadways. With help from our generous sponsors, the green team, we still provide regular maintenance for nearly 5,000 of these trees in roadside green spaces around baton rouge.
This is a marvelous, dedicated non-profit whose aim is to help Baton Rouge area citizens better understand, preserve, plant & maintain trees & forests as an important community resource! They promote the planting of trees native to the area. They work with undergraduate and graduate students in community forestry projects. I attended a tree sale of theirs, after losing five enormous beautiful trees to Hurricane Gustave. Now I have several lovely native trees thriving in my yard!
