Since 1991 Council Bluffs Trees Forever has made our city a better place to live, work and play! Trees add value to our lives, they provide us cleaner air and increased energy efficiency. The presence of trees in urban areas has been linked to reduced crime, increased revenue, higher property values and more efficient storm water management. Trees are a valuable asset to our community plus trees and green space restore us emotionally and spiritually and do it "naturally". Together we grow!

Council Bluffs Trees Forever has completed over 75 projects to date in the Council Bluffs and Pottawattamie County area. One of our recent projects is Heart Of The City, a program we started in 2010. This program consists of tree plantings in residential neighborhoods. Our focus began in areas of our community that had seen significant tree loss or damage due to storms and disease. To date we have planted hundreds of trees through our Heart Of The City Program from a humble beginning six years ago. A person would be hard pressed to not see one of our past projects while driving around our city and county, which to name a few include, Iowa School for The Deaf, Railroad Avenue, Lake Manawa and several schools. Let's all Plant It Forward!
