Arbor Day Awards

Celebrating those who are leading the charge to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees across the U.S. and around the world.

Each year, the Arbor Day Foundation honors top individuals and organizations involved in exemplary tree planting and environmental practices.

Since 1972, the Foundation has presented awards for work at the international, national, state, and community levels to recognize conservation efforts such as tree planting and care, Arbor Day celebrations, education, community projects, and roadside beautification.

Every year, nominations are accepted through the month of October, and winners are announced beginning in January of the following year.
