The Legacy Tree Project

Legacy Trees, such as many oaks and maples, can live 100 years or more. TreesGreenville is planting for the future by planting the right tree in the right place. Through our Play in the Shade plantings we create shade in outdoor learning and play areas at parks and schools throughout the County.  If you are interested in working with TreesGreenville to plant trees at your school or business, please download and complete our Request for Support Form.


NeighborWoods is our community tree planting initiative.  It includes free workshops to residents on tree planting and care.  Any neighborhood in Greenville County can apply to be a TreesGreenville NeighborWood.  TreesGreenville provides free trees to participating residents in affordable housing NeighborWoods.  In other NeighborWoods, there is a fee for each tree which ranges from $25 to $200 per tree.  Email us to learn more about a community tree planting in your neighborhood.

Tree Keepers

Sponsored by TreesGreenville, Clemson Cooperative Extension and Trees SC, this is a county-wide program designed specifically for tree care professionals to further the health and vitality of our urban forest. The program will educate participants on proper tree care techniques through the promotion of industry best practices. For more information, please download our brochure.

TreesGreenville Plantings


With the help of our volunteers, partners, and members, TreesGreenville has planted over 6,000 trees in parks, greenways, schools, and neighborhoods in and around Greenville County. There are over 120 TreesGreenville plantings in what we like to think of as our County Arboretum.  We plant mostly native and urban hardy species.  We plant most Saturday’s October-March and we are always looking for volunteers to come plant with us.  Our plantings are funded through: an annual campaign, general donations, honorariums & memorials, grants, and our two annual events, ReLEAF Day and the Turkey Day 8k.
