Speak for the Trees


Speak for the Trees

To increase the size and health of Boston’s urban forest, especially in underserved and under-canopied neighborhoods.

Trees matter—for public health, for environmental justice, for adapting to climate change.

At Speak for the Trees, Boston, we care about trees because they care for us. We work at the intersection of environmental justice, racial and social equity, public health, and climate change to advocate for a healthy and equitable urban forest in Boston. We recognize the inequities of tree canopy coverage and believe that trees are a vital component of developing, building, and maintaining healthy and vibrant communities.
