What is Treesilience?

Don’t misread this as tree “silence”. This is about tree “RESILIENCE”!

Treesilience is a national initiative focused on growing healthy urban canopy by empowering tree advocates while simultaneously removing the barriers, such as dead standing trees. The current rollout to North St. Louis City was informed by our pilot program. To read our one page report about what we learned from that pilot program, click here.

Treesilience focuses on:

1) Removing dead or dying trees to create new plantable spaces

2) Pruning large trees to extend a tree’s life

3) Replacing lost tree canopy by replanting trees at a ratio of 2:1

Treesilience offers a solution for homeowners who otherwise could not afford the cost of getting their dead or dying tree removed or their mature tree maintained. However, the purpose of Treesilience is not only about removing hazards for homeowners. The vision of Treesilience is to grow a resilient tree canopy in neighborhoods that need it most.
