Take 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.
This spring, the Town encouraged residents to plant new trees with sapling giveaways, community events, and more. This fall, our main event will be a seedling give away at the Children's Day Festival - October 16, 2022 at the Park West Recreation Complex
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.
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!
Get a Tree. Plant a Tree. Maintain your Tree. Enjoy the Benefits!

Tree Bank Grant application now online
The Tree Bank Grant Program was established for residents, civic clubs, and other groups who have a desire to beautify and enhance the Town through the planting of trees. This program is intended to provide financial assistance to proposed tree planting projects where trees are to be planted within publicly accessible areas such as street rights-of-way, public parks, school yards, residential common areas and churches.
