About Our Work

01WHO WE ARE

The Social Forestry Project is an experienced, trained, and dedicated group of environmentally conscious volunteers who love to plant trees. We partner with other like-minded community organizations and nonprofits to help foster a greener, more sustainable future for Detroit and Southeast Michigan communities.

02OUR MISSION

To assist, enhance and promote urban forestry and green infrastructure efforts across Detroit and Southeastern Michigan through environmental stewardship, community service, education, and fellowship.

Our Services

Reforestation is in our heart and our roots, but our organization’s experience branches out to: 

  • Rain garden/bioswale installations
  • Environmental education programming
  • Urban gardening
  • Invasive species removal
  • Shoreline cleanups
  • Community/municipality beautification projects
  • Environmental community engagement

03OUR HISTORY

The Social Forestry Project was formed as an informal volunteer group in the Spring of 2017.  We officially incorporated and received our 501(c)(3) non-profit designation on August 21st, 2017.  In our first year we helped plant over 200 trees, worked with over 100 volunteers, and collaborated with 12 City, State, Private and Non-Profit organizations to make Southeast Michigan a greener place to live.

Milestones

With great community support, we’ve achieved the following:

  • Informally formed in April of 2017
  • Non-profit status on August 21, 2017
  • Over 100 volunteers
  • Over 200 trees planted
  • Over a dozen partners

04OUR FUTURE

We will continue our partnerships with local governments, private business, non-profits, and community organizations to improve our environment through grassroots stewardship in Michigan. We look forward to partnering with other groups looking to plant trees and rain gardens, helping clean our beautiful beaches, parks, and communities,  as well as teaching future generations about environmental stewardship.

Goals

Over the course of 2018 and beyond, we hope to accomplish the following:

  • Secure a sustainable level of funding
  • Plant over 1,000 trees in Michigan
