Preserving, protecting, and planting trees in Greater Wilmington and the Lower Cape Fear region.

Sunset Park Tree Planters and More Needed
for Saturday, December 4th

The NC Urban Forest Legacy Tree Fund has provided a grant to plant 56 trees in Sunset Park on Saturday, December 5. We need volunteers to help with planting trees, assisting with volunteer check ins, helping Plastic Ocean Project pick up trash and leaving Tree Keeper flyers on doors where trees are planted.  

Volunteers will meet at Sunset Park Baptist Church, 231 Central Blvd. at 9:00 am.

Volunteer Victories

To celebrate TD Bank's 10th Tree Day Anniversary and through a grant from the Arbor Day Foundation, ACFT, Plastic Ocean Project volunteers and city staff planted 80 trees and cleaned up litter on Wilmington's Northside neighborhood on November 20th. 


The Alliance for Cape Fear Trees protects, preserves, and plants trees for the health of the community and the environment.

Trees provide aesthetic value and cultural identity to the area and are essential in:

  • preserving local ecosystems

  • managing storm water

  • creating shade

  • reducing air pollution

  • providing physical and mental health benefits

Interested in being a part of the Alliance for Cape Fear Trees?
