 Tree Lafayette is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which plants and maintains trees primarily along streets in Lafayette, Indiana. Since our beginning in 1993, Tree Lafayette has planted more than 3,700 trees.  Trees have many benefits for the community, the environment, and help mitigate the effects of climate change.

Some of the benefits of trees:

  • ·         Provide us with oxygen to breathe
  • ·         Trees can cool the city by up to 10°F by shading our homes and streets and releasing water vapor into the air through their leaves
  • ·         Contribute to better physical and mental health
  • ·         Help reduce crime
  • ·         Reduce noise levels by blocking and absorbing sounds
  • ·         Tree lined streets and roads are safer for traffic and pedestrians
  • ·         Clean the air
  • ·         Help reduce storm water runoff and flooding
  • ·         Help clean water
  • ·         Trees properly placed around buildings can reduce air conditioning needs and can save energy used for heating
  • ·         Help mitigate the effects of climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide and other pollutants from the atmosphere and then storing the carbon
  • ·         Increase property values
  • ·         Are good for businesses and the local economy
  • ·         Trees and green areas are a draw to visitors and potential new residents and businesses

Help mitigate the effects of climate change:

  •          Greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere are high and are increasing.  Significant increases in greenhouse gas emissions will cause climate change. Greenhouse gases include nitrous oxide, water vapor, methane, and carbon dioxide.
  •          Climate change may already be altering weather patterns.
  •          Planting and retaining urban and rural trees and forests is an easy way to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere because trees incorporate carbon dioxide through the process of photosynthesis and store the carbon.
  •          An important result of the 2015 Paris climate talks, that included more than 150 world leaders, was the emphasis on the importance of preserving forests. The role of trees/forests in combating climate change was formally recognized and many agreed that leaving forests intact or encouraging reforestation is one of the most practical and affordable methods to combat climate change.
  • ·         We need to protect existing trees and plant more trees as soon as possible. 

We need to plant many more trees and need your help.  Please donate today.
