Welcome to Regreen Springfield!

Through our tree advocacy efforts, ReGreen Springfield has collaborated with businesses, community organizations, educational partners and government agencies to promote the reforestation of Springfield, improve growing conditions for trees and engage new allies in tree care and monitoring, education and citizen science.  We realize that the strength of our city is found in the neighborhoods. With this as the foundation for our work, we have embarked on an effort to ‘regreen’ the city… one tree at at time.

Please join Regreen Springfield in this reforestation effort by planting a tree in your own yard, helping to plant trees along our streets and in our parks, or donate your time or funds to neighborhood regreening efforts. With your help, Springfield’s urban forest will be restored.

Starting on July 9th, ReGreen Springfield, in partnership with the City of Springfield will be offering FREE green skills and natural resources training to youth living in Springfield. The Springfield Green Corps is a hands-on environmental experience for youth, ages 14-19 years old.

Awareness and Stewardship: Learning about trees, ecosystems, and sustainability practices fosters environmental awareness. Urban youth develop a sense of stewardship for their local environment, leading to a stronger connection with their communities.

Exposure to nature has been linked to reduced stress, improved mood, and enhanced mental well-being, addressing the emotional challenges faced by urban youth.
