Arbor Day Foundation — Helping a community taking root in Upstate South Carolina

The Arbor Day Foundation recently published an article about a huge tree-planting event courtesy of TreesUpstate in the affordable community of Creekside in the City of Greer.

“Trees are important, especially in low- to moderate-income neighborhoods,” said Evangeline Costa, Outreach and Engagement Manager for TreesUpstate. “Those are the communities that are often left out. They’re often missing trees. … And typically, they’re lacking services. So, for us to work in a community to bring in trees, it’s creating tree equity. It’s bringing fairness across the board to a community.”
