The City of Auburn was first named a “Tree City USA” in 1984, one of the first cities in Alabama to earn this distinction. Auburn has proudly maintained “Tree City USA” status every year since.
The Auburn Tree Trust is just one tool that the Auburn Tree Commission uses to help maintain Auburn’s status as a Tree City. A gift to the Tree Trust is 100% tax deductible and goes to the planting of trees on public property. Planting a tree can honor a family event, a friend or a special occasion. It can also honor a birth, wedding, anniversary or death. The Tree Trust will take any amount of donation to go toward planting trees in Auburn. We no longer provide individual plaques for trees, but we will notify you of the location of the tree you helped to plant once your donation has been used.
