A Tree for Every Delawarean

Trees are natural champions. From our state forests to our city parks, trees improve air and water quality, preserve soil, and support wildlife – and they play a critical role in helping to fight climate change.

The Tree for Every Delawarean Initiative (TEDI) is part of Delaware’s comprehensive plan to respond to climate change.

The goal: Plant at least one tree for every Delawarean.

You can help. Plant trees at your home or business and add them to the TEDI Tracker using the full screen version or the mobile phone version. Find a tree-planting event near you.
