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.

Help Plant a Perennial Garden at the Mason Square Library – May 6th

Please join ReGreen Springfield for a planting of a new garden at the Mason Square Branch Library (765 State Street), on Saturday, May 6th! We will be planting perennials and pollinator plants in the garden area, hoping that we can add to the ecological and aesthetic value of the garden. Plan to help, observe or just offer support to this effort.  Bring your family and friends to this community effort.  You’ll have fun and help to make the neighborhood a bit more sustainable, reslient and beautiful. 

We will be starting at 10:00 AM and finish at 1:00 PM, when we will have an old fashioned barbecue with burgers and dogs for everyone.  Please plan to join us if you are able.

The event is being held on Saturday May 6th from 10am-1pm. We can’t wait to see you there!

Arboretum Assistants Needed for 2023

We’re ready to move forward with our work on getting the Arboretum at Forest Park ready for our 2023 season and to advance its role in helping to teach folks about trees and forests.

Why not consider joining us as an ‘Arboretum Assistant’ and help us to tag trees, prune shrubs and ornamental plants and helping with educational events throughout the year.

We have two training sessions lined up for this Spring, which will get you up to speed on how you can join the tree tagging initiative, and learn a bit about tree identification along the way.

To learn more about the program and to register for the training sessions, please visit https://arboretum.regreenspringfield.org/arboretum-assistant-field-training-sessions/
