TreeUtah Live PC Give PC 2020

Written by

Park City, UT - In 1988 Salt Lake Tribune journalist, Pepper Provenzano, saw a need to improve Utah’s environment through tree planting, stewardship, and education. To meet this need TreeUtah was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

This November 6, our community will come together for the 10th annual Live PC Give PC, and we invite YOU to support TreeUtah in planting more trees and restoring green spaces. Live PC Give PC is 24 hours of local nonprofit giving—and it’s your chance to support building a healthy tree canopy in Summit County. Whether you live, work, stay, or play here, we all benefit from trees planted by TreeUtah, and this year is critical for COVID-19 stabilization and recovery.

TreeUtah works with students, municipalities, local businesses, community groups, and volunteers to plant trees in public spaces throughout the state. We plant trees of all types and sizes to make Utah a greener place to live, work, and play. Every year, TreeUtah aims to plant 7,000 new trees to make our communities healthier.

TreeUtah has received a grant award as one of four first 2020 Park City Climate Fund Grantees by the Park City Community Foundation. With this grant, TreeUtah has been hosting educational community events to plant trees that in turn sequester carbon in the soil. We have committed to educational events throughout Summit County engaging volunteers and planting trees in restoration sites, schoolyards, and open lands.

TreeUtah has planted more than 385,000 trees with the help of over 165,000 volunteers and donors around Utah. Together, we can shape the future of Park City to include a healthy tree canopy for generations to enjoy.

Join us in supporting our community nonprofits, this November 6, give together for a great Park City!
