City of Auburn Logo

Hoops for Trees is a green initiative aimed at  increase urban forest canopy, improve water quality and provide numerous other social, environmental and economic benefits on the areas across Alabama. Through this tree planting program, the aim is to bring awareness to Urban Forestry and  help establish the next generation of urban foresters, arborist and horticulturist as they’re taught how to plant trees correctly and have a little  fun as well.  Planting locations has been selected by city  personnel. Trees will  be planted at Sam Harris Park where the trees will help with a buffer zone, erosion mitigation, shade, wildlife habitat and other benefits are needed. The overall goal with this event is to increase visibility of the urban forest scenario and teach students about selecting and planting trees.

A basketball game of horse will be played and if you stay in, you keep playing and if you miss and lose out of the game, then you go plant a tree.
