In March of 2022, OKC Beautiful launched the Tree OKC initiative, in partnership with remaining members of the Tree Bank Foundation.
After 30 years of service to Oklahoma communities, The Tree Bank Foundation consolidated its programming within OKC Beautiful, an environmental education and beautification nonprofit serving the Oklahoma City metro area. The Tree Bank Foundation was founded in 1987 as a program to plant trees in Oklahoma City. It expanded to include the entire state in 1992. Since that time, the Tree Bank planted more than 224,000 trees, and programs included Disaster Re-Leaf and Oklahoma Orchards.
Tree OKC was a program created to continue the efforts of the Tree Bank Foundation. The focus will be to expand tree canopy throughout the metro area through tree plantings, giveaways, education, and more.
