TAKE ROOT MOUNT PLEASANT LOGOTake Root Mount Pleasant is a community tree planting initiative designed to encourage residents to take an active role in beautifying our Town and addressing the challenges of growth.  Over the coming months, leading up to SC Arbor Day on December 3, the Town will be encouraging residents to plant new trees with sapling give-aways, community events, and more. Team up with your neighbors to Take Root Mount Pleasant!  

The benefits of more trees in our community stretch far beyond the aesthetic. Trees provide habitat and raise property values. They help to manage stormwater runoff. Their shade cools summer heat and lowers utility costs. They improve air quality, which contributes to everyone’s health. Their growth works to reduce the effects of climate change. 

Do you have someplace to plant a tree and let it grow? What about your neighbors? Your HOA? Consider the impact if we all took up the challenge to plant another tree. Let’s all Take Root Mount Pleasant. Use the hashtag #TakeRootMP on Instagram and Facebook when you share photos of your newly planted tree!

The Town is offering a limited number of native tree seedlings free for local planting! We are giving the trees away at certain Town events throughout the year!

In the meantime, any new trees planted can be "counted" as part of Take Root Mount Pleasant, so please support our local retailers!
