Sustaining Our Urban Landscape • SOUL

Cooler temperatures have finally arrived and we’re excited for our busiest planting season yet!

If you’re interested in receiving trees for your home, business, school, or place of worship, please apply for trees with our online planting permit application, or contact Catherine with your questions.

We held our first big planting on Saturday, November 2nd, giving homes to 84 Savannah Hollies and two Live Oaks in the right-of-ways and neautral ground along S. Galvez Street between Toledano St. and Martin Luther King Blvd. This past Saturday, November 9th we planted 100 Live Oaks in the neutral ground on Bundy Road in New Orleans East. We’ll be planting the banks of Bayou St. John between Esplanade and Florida Avenues over the next two weeks, and will be putting over 100 trees in the ground through Mid-City and Navarre on November 23rd! Volunteer for this and other upcoming plantings here.

If you’d like to volunteer with SOUL in a deeper way, consider becoming a Block Captain! Block Captains act as liaisons between communities and SOUL. After attending a brief training you’ll be empowered to enlist your neighbors and reforest your community! If you’re interested, please contact Catherine.
