2021 **TreeVitalize grant funding?

We’ve received many inquiries concerning available funding for 2021 projects through the TreeVitalize grant program. The PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, funder of TreeVitalize, has chosen to move this established grant program “in house” resulting in a temporary suspension of funding opportunities while their staff prepare the new program.  We apologize for this inconvenience.

** Please note, TreePennsylvania continues to provide a seasonal Bare Root Tree grant program for seasonal plantings.  Please visit our Bare Root Tree page for more information.
