MISSION
The mission of Grand Trees of Chatham is to increase public understanding and appreciation of Chatham County's valuable and irreplaceable trees. This mission will be accomplished through two components:
  • Grand Trees of Chatham Awards Program. A tree recognition component that seeks to identify and award outstanding Chatham trees. Trees are nominated by Chatham citizens with the approval of the tree's owner.
  • Public Education Program:  An education component which seeks to educate Chatham citizens on the value and care of trees through workshops, public events, and community outreach. Contact us at the e-mail below or visit our Facebook page to find out about upcoming events.
