The TreeCentennial

As New Orleans celebrates her 300th year, we honor the city’s rich history and cultural heritage. Having flourished under the governance of three countries and endured fires and disasters, the people of New Orleans are steeped in resilience and diversity. The same can be said about our city’s urban forest. Our trees are rooted in every step of our city’s rich culture and the devastating loss of our canopy was like losing part of our legacy. This year, SOUL enters its third year of reforesting New Orleans, block by block.

To celebrate, we are launching our own month-long series of inspirational and educational offerings to raise critical funding for our third year of reforesting New Orleans. We’ll feature stories from your neighbors and explore how trees offer lasting benefits to our city. We’re calling it the TreeCentennial. See the stories here:
