Chapel Hill government turns 200 years old in November 2019.  To celebrate, we are inviting the entire community to help us plant 200 trees for 200 years.

Community Partners – Community partners including UNC, the North Carolina Botanical Garden and Friends of Chapel Hill Parks & Recreation have committed to help us reach our goal.  Stay tuned to learn more about where new trees are being planted throughout town.

Neighborhood Champions – Planting a tree is one of the easiest and most powerful things you can do to have a positive impact on the environment.  Join us in reaching our goals by planting a tree in your yard this year and then drop a link in our interactive map!

How you can help – plant some trees!

  • Plant a tree in your yard
  • Invite friends, neighbors, local schools, churches and businesses to “put down roots” at their site
