Trees are natural champions. From our state forests to our city parks, trees improve air and water quality, preserve soil, and support wildlife – and they play a critical role in helping to fight climate change.
The Tree for Every Delawarean Initiative (TEDI) is part of Delaware’s comprehensive plan to respond to climate change.
The goal: Plant at least one tree for every Delawarean.
The Tree for Every Delawarean Initiative is a partnership that includes the DNREC Division of Climate, Coastal and Energy, the Urban and Community Forestry (UFC) programs in the Department of Agriculture’s Delaware Forest Service and other stakeholders.
Funding for tree-plantings is available from a variety of sources for private residences and landowners, communities and homeowners associations, non-governmental organizations, parks, schools, municipalities, counties and state agencies.
