Tree Stewards Education Program

RITree is Rhode Island's leading tree advocacy group dedicated to our state's urban and community forests. Since forming in 1991, we have created numerous programs and activities to meet our goals. Many of our programs are educational, others encourage the public's participation in various statewide efforts, including the Champion Tree Registry and the Arbor Day Tree Planting Program.
