Inspiring People to Plant, Nurture and Celebrate Trees

Help Us Restore Des Moines' Urban Forest








We estimate it takes $150, on average, to plant a tree.  It takes a community to maintain it.  Tree Des Moines exists to educate and activate our neighbors and support the proper selection, purchasing, placement and maintenance of trees.

Help Rebuild Des Moines’ Aging and Weakened Urban Forest


All contributions remain in the Des Moines metro area to support the Tree Des Moines mission. Tree Des Moines is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, so all donations are 100-percent tax deductible.
