Reforest Rochester Fund

Help Rochester Maintain its Urban Forest

Please help us plant roots that will grow to captivate future generations of citizens.  

Rochester is deeply rooted in our horticultural history and our community’s passion for environmental preservation.   Over the decades, tree planting programs have helped preserve the city’s leafy canopy along tree-lined streets and in tree-filled parks and cemeteries.  To ensure the continuation of this tradition, several Reforest Rochester programs have been established to accept donations for tree planting efforts.  These programs help to ensure that Rochester continues to be a, “City in a Forest.”

Reforest Rochester’s Street Trees

 
 
Trees grace Rochester’s neighborhoods lending a park-like beauty to the city. Practically every avenue and street in the city is lined with trees. You can help preserve this beauty for generations to come by making a donation to assist with the purchase of street trees. Those who contribute at least $250 may commemorate an event or honor a specific individual.

To donate, please print and complete the Street Trees Donation form

Reforest Mount Hope Cemetery

 
 

Mount Hope’s horticultural roots resonate throughout its history. At the cemetery’s inception in 1838, planners had the prudence to minimally disturb the existing forest. Subsequent tree plantings added to the original forest resulted in the stunning and diverse collection of magnificent tree specimens enjoyed today. Unfortunately, time and weather conditions have impacted many aging trees and left them in need of replacement. To commemorate Mount Hope’s 175th anniversary, private donations are being solicited to assist with reforestation efforts.

Reforest Rochester’s Parks

 
 

Rochester is blessed with a city parks system designed by the renowned landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted. These beautifully landscaped parks planted with specimen trees from Rochester’s historic nurseries create awe inspiring public spaces for the community. You can help ensure that these historic and other smaller community parks remain tree-filled for future generations by making a donation to assist with the purchase of park trees. Those who contribute at least $250 may commemorate an event or honor a specific individual.

To donate, please print and complete the Park Trees Donation form.
