DeKalb County, GA — DeKalb County and Tree Atlanta’s Front Yard Tree program have partnered once again to bring “ReLeaf DeKalb” back to residential owners in unincorporated DeKalb County.

“ReLeaf DeKalb II” gives eligible residents the opportunity to have trees professionally planted in their front yard by Trees Atlanta. Requests can be submitted here.

The second year of the program aims to continue increasing DeKalb’s tree canopy through planting trees, particularly, in residential front yards and on public properties. All with the goal of enhancing the benefits DeKalb County residents receive from their ecosystem.

Tree’s Atlanta will also be hosting several public property tree planting events in the coming weeks. These events are outdoor, community activities that also can serve as a way to earn community service hours.

Here is the schedule of events:

– South Stone Mountain: Saturday, Jan. 14 from 9 a.m. to noon.

– North Hairston Rd: Saturday, Jan. 21 from 9 a.m. to noon.

– Memorial Dr: Saturday, Feb. 4 from 9 a.m. to noon.

– Wade Walker Park for Tu B’Shvat: Sunday, Feb. 5 from 1- 4 p.m.
