ReLeaf New Orleans


Our ReLeaf New Orleans program is an initiative that was born out of Hurricane Katrina’s destruction of New Orleans’ urban forest.  Parkway Partners holds a tree giveaway every Fall, and then works with neighborhood associations and community groups in organizing tree plantings throughout Orleans Parish during planting season, (which ends in late February).

As New Orleans is now the most deforested city in the U.S., Parkway Partners has committed to reforesting New Orleans.

  • Parkway Partners has planted 12,664 trees since 2005.
  • Tree Troopers training is an annual educational series that trains citizen foresters in how to replant and maintain our urban forest.
