Foundation / Corporation
Carla Hardy West Virginia Project CommuniTree (CTree)
In-kind grants to West Virginia organizations, schools, IHEs, and agencies of tree planting kits and technical assistance in eligible regions. Funding is intended to promote planting trees on publicly used lands. Programs must incorporate the use of volunteers and have an educational component. Project must take place on publicly-used property in the Potomac Highlands. Potomac Highlands include the eight counties of the eastern panhandle of West Virginia: Jefferson, Berkeley, Morgan, Mineral, Hampshire, Hardy, Grant, and Pendleton counties.
CTree is “growing communities from the ground up” by providing volunteers technical assistance, trees, and planting supplies for planting on public land. Groups identify the planting location, develop a planting plan with CI staff, and organize their volunteers for planting day and follow-up maintenance.
The ultimate goal of CTree is to protect rivers and watersheds by reducing stormwater runoff pollution to help restore local streams, rivers, and ultimately the Chesapeake Bay. To achieve this goal, CTree promotes planting urban trees on publicly-used lands in the Potomac Highlands.
Additional goals for CTree include:
The Funding Source prioritizes projects that engage whole communities and strive for diversity and inclusiveness.

If awarded, Cacapon Institute will purchase your trees, as well as tubes, stakes, cages, etc. at a wholesale rate and deliver them in the form of a “CTree Kit” to one of four pickup locations.
