TreeUtah is committed to restoring and preserving healthy ecosystems along Utah’s urbanized Wasatch Front. For over 15 years TreeUtah has organized plantings of thousands of native trees and shrubs along the Jordan River corridor and other critical areas. Maintaining the ecological health of our waterways and open spaces is critical for sustaining wildlife habitat, as well as ensuring clean water, clean air, and the overall health of Salt Lake Valley residents. In addition, our restoration work builds civic involvement and a sense of community.
TreeUtah’s efforts would not be possible without the help of its partnerships and thousands of individual volunteers each year. We are privileged to partner with the Utah Department of Natural Resources, Salt Lake County’s Million Tree Program, HawkWatch International, Tracy Aviary, and many other organizations. TreeUtah also works with diverse groups including large and small businesses, other non-profit organizations, scout and youth groups, religious congregations, schools, and individual volunteers.
Each spring and fall TreeUtah coordinates tree-planting events at several of our restoration sites. These tree-plantings include a history of the site, information on native plants and animals, a safety briefing, and tree-planting directions. Additionally, volunteers assist us with surveying plant and animal species, including migratory songbirds and waterfowl, at our restoration sites. We maintain a comprehensive list of species that can be found at these sites at different times of the year.
TreeUtah also facilitates Eagle Scout projects at our restoration sites. Such projects include building American kestrel nest boxes, making beaver-proof fences for seedlings, and building wooden walkways to protect sensitive areas.
