Trees4Us Pawtucket Central Falls
Groundwork Rhode Island and the Pawtucket Central Falls Health Equity Zone (PCF HEZ) have completed our tree equity planting project in Pawtucket and Central Falls! We planted a total of 197 trees over two years and are now helping maintain these trees for three years. A final report and photos are coming soon! Thank you to everyone who made this project possible.
Why are we planting trees?
American Forests awarded the Pawtucket Central Falls Health Equity Zone (HEZ) a $143,000 Trees for Human Health grant, allowing HEZ partner, Groundwork RI, to plant trees at no cost to residents.
The project’s goal is to achieve Tree Equity, defined as the right number of trees so all people, regardless of neighborhood, experience the health, economic, and other benefits of trees.
Thank you to our funders!
