Report Your Plantings
Every tree counts! And counting every tree also helps show whether Northern Virginia is meeting its environmental goals. The Virginia Department of Forestry is counting planted trees to see if Virginia is meeting its stormwater goals to protect the bay, and the Department of Environmental Quality is asking Northern Virginia to plant 600,000 trees by 2025.
Since most available land in Northern Virginia is private property, we won’t meet the goal without planting thousands of new trees in our own neighborhoods. Help us track our progress and build momentum by reporting your tree planting. We are forwarding these reports to be added to the Virginia Department of Forestry's My Trees Count map, which is updated a couple times a year.
