About Us

The Providence Neighborhood Planting Program is a street tree planting and maintenance partnership between the City of Providence, the Mary Elizabeth Sharpe Street Tree Endowment, and the people of Providence, Rhode Island. Providence's innovative citizen planting program, established in the fall of 1988, offers tree grants to neighborhood planting groups, twice a year. Purchase of trees for qualifying groups is funded jointly by the City of Providence and the Mary Elizabeth Sharpe Street Tree Endowment, an Advised Fund of the Rhode Island Foundation. Groundwork Providence serves as PNPP’s Fiscal Agent. Over 6000 street trees have been planted through the program, at a current rate of 450-500 trees per year. Plantings are scheduled on Saturdays in or around April and October.
