Stronger communities through healthy trees
Join us in creating a sustainable community. Calling all tree lovers! It’s finally tree planting season. We must continue to plant trees in our landscapes for the myreiad of benefits they provide to the entire community.
Volunteer with Bridging The Gap’s Heartland Tree Alliance (HTA) program! The mission of Heartland Tree Alliance is to engage people of the Greater Kansas City region to take action and advocate for a healthy community forest. At our workdays, we explain why it’s important to maintain and increase our urban tree canopy, then we split into small groups to prune, plant or mulch small trees. We work throughout the metropolitan area, on both sides of the state line.
Since 2005, HTA volunteers have donated over 13,000 hours of time! The efforts put forth from these volunteers has enabled HTA to plant 17,874 trees, prune 3,264, and maintain an additional 2,527 trees by mulching or removing tree stakes.
