Our mission is to preserve, protect and plant trees to enhance the quality of life and health
for present and future generations in the Lower Cape Fear area.
Did you know that tree planting season in Wilmington is October to February (and not the spring)? Our mild winter months give newly planted trees a 2 to 3 month head start in establishing roots so they can better survive our hot summers!
