Welcome to Regreen Springfield!

Through our tree advocacy efforts, ReGreen Springfield has collaborated with businesses, community organizations, educational partners and government agencies to promote the reforestation of Springfield, improve growing conditions for trees and engage new allies in tree care and monitoring.

ReGreen Springfield realizes that strength of our city in found in the neighborhoods. With that as the foundation for our work, we have embarked on an effort to partner with civic associations, religious institutions, businesses and other advocacy groups to assist in helping to ‘regreen’ the city.

A few of the thngs that ReGreen Springfield is doing to ensure that urban forest of the city is enjoyed by generations into the future include the following:

  • Planning for greening
  • Planting new trees
  • Maintenance of newly planted trees
  • Engaging ‘citizen scientists’
  • Developing strategic master plans

Last summer, we were able to plant 1,040 new trees across the tornado zone of Springfield in an effort to regreen the city and to help reduce energy use by individual homeowners.  Please join Regreen Springfield in this reforestation effort by planting a tree in your own yard, helping to plant trees along our streets and in our parks, or donate your time or funds to neighborhood regreening efforts. With your help, Springfield’s urban forest will be restored… one tree at a time.
