Mission Statement
To promote and increase awareness of proper tree planting and care in Nevada and provide leadership, development and support for professional and volunteer community forestry programs across the state.

For the past decade the Nevada Shade Tree Council has been a lead organization Nevada promoting tree planting and related educational programs for tree care and maintenance. The Council, a non-profit volunteer organization, was founded to serve as the advisory council to the State Forester for the Nevada Division of Forestry’s federally funded Urban Forestry Program. The Council’s Education Committee carries on year around activities that may include workshops, tree plantings, and the award and presentations of arboriculture resource books and materials to selected libraries around the state.

Projects include:
  • Presentations of a slide program developed on the ‘Benefits of Urban Forestry’.
  • STOP TOPPING campaign and bumper sticker in 1999.
  • The review and recommendation of Urban and Community Forestry Program Grant Proposals.
For a bumper sticker, a slide program presentation, assistance with Arbor Day Activities or assistance with development of a community forestry tree board, contact us:
