Treesilience is a growing national initiative focused on removing the barriers to healthy canopy. This includes 3 main components:
- Removal and replacement of dead or dying trees
- Mature tree maintenance
- Site preparation to improve planting conditions for new plantings.
Treesilience focuses on areas where canopy is either threatened or already lost, and prioritizes communities where our neighbors stand to gain the most from investments in a more resilient urban forests.
National partners include The Nature Conservancy and Davey Tree Expert Company, with generous support from the USDA Forest Service.
St. Louis partners include Beyond Housing and St. Louis City Forestry Division.
