Our mission is to improve Utah's quality of life for present and future generations by enhancing the environment through tree planting, stewardship, and education. TreeUtah has planted more than 385,000 trees with the help of over 165,000 volunteers and donors around Utah. I love getting outside and at TreeUtah's tree plantings we get to go to beautiful locations and plant trees. There is nothing better than planting a little tree and knowing I am making our environment better.
TreeUtah believes that trees are for everyone. Partnerships play a critical role in our long term success - without this collaboration we would not be able to provide high quality tree plantings and education programs for the residents of Utah.

Trees increase property value: well-maintained trees increase "curb appeal" of properties. Much research shows people are willing to pay 3 to 7 percent more for home properties with ample trees versus few trees.
