A Little Rock Urban Forestry Program

Donations for the "Trees for Tomorrow" program are set aside for the specific purpose of planting trees in densely developed urban areas of Little Rock.

All donations are gratefully accepted and put to good use in our tree planting program.

For a donation of $250 or more, we will plant a "Memorial Tree" at McArthur Park in your name or in the name of someone you choose. Your memorial tree will display a plaque with the name of the person you have chosen to honor.

E.N.A.C.T.

"Enhancing Neighborhood and Community Trees" (E.N.A.C.T.) is a program of the Urban Forestry Division of Little Rock Parks and Recreation. The program provides awards of up to $2,500 to qualified Neighborhood and Property Owner Associations and local community organizations throughout Little Rock.

Registered Neighborhood and Property Owner Associations or local community organizations may use the awards for the purchasing of trees to be planted on Little Rock street easements, public parks, and other grounds owned or controlled by the city. The E.N.A.C.T. Program awards must be matched by cash or in-kind sources by the Neighborhoods. This match may include volunteer time, supplies or additional landscaping.

E.N.A.C.T. Program applications become available in June of each year and workshops are held each July to help the neighborhood or community groups complete the applications and plan their planting projects.
