Tree Program

“Planting for a Greener Cobb!”

The Cobb Trees Program, a subdivision of Keep Cobb Beautiful, was founded October of 2000 and has been fulfilling its mission “Planting for a greener Cobb” since December of that year. To date the program has provided over 5,000 trees to help beautify and enhance the quality of life for all Cobb County residents.

Cobb Trees provides educational activities, contests, community plantings, mulching and upkeep activities, tree dedications, tree adoptions, Arbor Day programs and other activities for the county.

The program is fully endorsed by Cobb County Manager, Mr. David Hankerson, Board of Commissioner Chairman Mike Boyce and Commissioners Bob Weatherford (District 1), Bob Ott (District 2), JoAnn Birrell (District 3) and Lisa Cupid (District 4).

It is also a partnership between several Cobb County Departments: P.A.R.K.S.(Parks, Arts, Recreation, KCB, Solid Waste)  the Department of Transportation, Community Development, Property Management, and the Cobb County Extension Service.

In addition to county agencies and departments, Cobb Trees works closely with the Georgia Forestry Commission and the Cobb County School District. Many of our trees, materials, and refreshments are generously donated by area businesses that support our “green” efforts.

Check our calendar and facebook page often for volunteer opportunities.  Our planting season runs from October to March.
