Trees Atlanta

Planting and Mulching with Trees Atlanta is one of many projects that the Davis Academy has participated in to support community initiatives.

Trees Atlanta is excited to host its inaugural Dunwoody Tree Sale at Brook Run Park, in conjunction with its long-time annual Atlanta Tree Sale.

The fundraiser will take place on Saturday, Oct. 14 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. rain or shine.  

The Dunwoody Tree Sale will feature hundreds of the best native and exotic plants available, including trees, shrubs, native perennials, and tree-friendly vines that make up every layer of our forest, canopy to ground.

The Dunwoody Tree Sale gives shoppers a chance to talk with experts and certified arborists about why each tree is unique, so that making the decision on which tree to buy becomes easier.

All proceeds benefit Trees Atlanta’s planting and education programs, helping plant over 6,000 trees each year and reach over 8,000 children and adults with our education programs across metro Atlanta.  The trees planted with funds from the annual sale help rejuvenate Atlanta’s tree canopy and contribute to a healthy, diverse forest.

The previous weekend, Trees Atlanta will host its 18th Annual Atlanta Tree Sale at the Freedom Farmers’ Market at The Carter Center, also from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. This year’s edition of our famous annual sale will feature the same great selection and expertise as the Dunwoody Tree Sale, with even larger quantities of trees and plants.

Earlier in September, the Davis Academy joined forces with Trees Atlanta for a “Planting and Mulching” event. The collaboration took place on Sunday, Sept. 17 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at Brook Run Park.

The Davis Academy brought 87 volunteers to the event, all of which put their green thumbs to work to beautify Brook Run Park.

Under the guidance of Trees Atlanta, The Davis Academy volunteers worked diligently to mulch and maintain a grove of trees within the park.

Event co-chair and Tzedek Committee member Kathleen Hoff stated “We had about 40 Davis families join us for mulching and taking care of a grove of trees at the far end of the park. We were thrilled with the participation of the Davis Community and Trees Atlanta was the perfect partner for our first of three social outreach/justice projects in the greater Atlanta region”.

“Over the past several years, Trees Atlanta has planted hundreds of trees at Brook Run, and the work done with the Davis Academy will contribute to the long-term survival of those trees,” said Trees Atlanta Donor and Public Relations Coordinator, Joe Thomas. Partnerships like this one build strong communities, leave lasting legacies in the form of canopy cover, and spark the imagination of future generations of tree advocates. Thank you to the Davis Academy community and the city of Dunwoody for their support of Trees Atlanta.”
