The West Lafayette Tree Friends were founded in 1981 with the adoption of the original West Lafayette Landscape Ordinance. We are citizens who care about making West Lafayette greener!
The West Lafayette Tree Friends are a volunteer organization that aims to create and sustain economic, environmental, and physical and mental health benefits in our West Lafayette community through planting and nurturing trees in our public right-of-ways.
Our primary mission is to plant trees and implement landscaping projects in the public right-of-way. We work in cooperation with property owners to enhance the beauty of the streets of West Lafayette. Additionally, we complete one or two large planting projects each year. All Tree Friends initiatives are financed by private donations which are augmented by matching grants when available. Thank you for your support!
In 2021, we came together to discuss the future and where we want to go. Together, we developed our first strategic plan to guide us to better plant, prune, and protect our urban forest. To view our strategic plan, click here.
The West Lafayette Tree Friends meet on the second Tuesday of every month for Tree Friends business. These monthly meetings are open to the public, and all are welcome. Committees for the organization meet throughout the month. Come join the fun and make an impact in West Lafayette!
