Up With Trees was founded in 1976 with a mission to beautify greater Tulsa by planting trees and to create urban forestry awareness through education. With the generous support of donors and volunteers, we plant along streets and trails, in parks, schools, fire stations, neighborhoods, and many other public properties. Up With Trees is dedicated to planting, preserving and promoting Tulsa's urban forest.
