Then and Now – Judah from Edina, Minnesota

“We planted this flowering crab apple tree when it was just a stick and the neighbors said it was never going to make it. But we kept caring for it and it is beautiful and full now!!

Thank you for all that you are doing for our kids and planet!!”

Sally (Mom) & Judah (Son) from Highlands Elementary School in Edina, MN

Then and Now – Charlotte of St. Paul, Minnesota

This is Charlotte in kindergarten with her newly planted tree in 2014. This is Charlotte with her tree 5 years later.

“Every spring, we plant a garden around the tree and it’s been fun to watch the tree grow each year.”

Every tree on a Google map

We pinned a tree on a Google map at each location a tree was planted through the hands of a child in our program since 2013.

The Forest is growing!

Then and Now – Sophia of Scandia, Minnesota

Sophia received this free tree from Neighborhood Forest back in 2014 when she was 13 years old. Both tree and child are growing and doing great!

“We are so grateful that you are doing the program and continuing to hand out trees to kids. When they can see them grow and know that they were the ones who planted the little seedling – it’s an empowering position for them to be in. They can see that they are making a difference for the environment and for the wildlife who uses the trees for shelter and/or a resting place.”

~ Sophia’s Mom

Happy Children, Little Trees!

Kids at Marcy Open Elementary in Minneapolis, Minnesota are happy to have a new green friend to take home!

These are the kind of smiles we live for at Neighborhood Forest. We love giving free trees to kids and we love to see our little trees and kids grow up together.
