We work with the city government and typically complete one or two large planting projects each year and schedule fall and spring pruning programs. We also work with individual property owners to address any concerns they have with their street trees such as planting new ones, pruning, or tree removal when necessary. If you would like to have a street tree planted, or you see a street tree that needs pruning, seems sick, or appears to be dying (or dead), please contact the West Lafayette Tree Friends at email@example.com.
All Tree Friends initiatives are financed by private donations which may be augmented by funds from the city government and/or matching grants when available.
Want to help the Tree Friends keep the city’s street trees healthy?
Here is the Fall 2021 pruning schedule. Contact the city Forestry and Community Greenspace manager at 765-775-5170 for information.
The West Lafayette Tree Friends is launching its most ambitious project to date – A tree nursery! This expanded capability will allow the organization to lower its costs and plant more trees.
There is no better time to start this project. 20201 is the 30th year West Lafayette has been designated by the Arbor Day Foundation as Tree City USA and the 40th anniversary for the West Lafayette Tree Friends. We are growing for the future by launching this campaign to raise $50,000 for a municipal nursery. Join us by supporting this initiative today by visiting www.wltreefriends.org/donate/.
We will keep donors informed every step of the way. To follow the progress of the 30-40-50 Project, sign up for our newsletter, follow us on Facebook and Instagram, and visit this site. Thank you for your support!
Tree Friends have an Endowment!

• Putting on tree sweaters (really!)
Community members also support us by making donations (click the button above for info) and 100% of every gift we receive goes directly into planting, pruning, and protecting trees in West Lafayette’s urban forest.
Any help you give us will be appreciated and can make a difference; don’t forget…
