Plant Five for Life, a nonprofit organization in Pittsburgh, PA, is dedicated to connecting children and families with nature and fostering a deeper understanding of the connection between human health and the environment. With a vision to revitalize the tree canopy by planting five trees for every child born, the organization hopes to foster a sense of community by planting trees at sites in need of ecological and social services in or around each child’s neighborhood. Families are encouraged to track the trees growth alongside the growth of their child.
