This new program provides residents an opportunity to plant trees in areas where trees have been removed on public rights-of-way as part of Duke Energy's ongoing vegetation management work. The goal is to plant two trees for every one tree removed by Duke Energy. Canopy tree replacement will be accomplished by utilizing open space and park land to replant these larger trees to maintain our canopy integrity.
The NeighborWoods Right Plant, Right Place Program is a partnership between Greensboro Beautiful, the City of Greensboro, the NC Cooperative Extension Service, affected property owners, and neighborhoods.
Trees for the NeighborWoods Program are funded through a generous grant from UPS, and by private, tax-deductible donations to Greensboro Beautiful's Tree Fund.
