2022 VOLUNTEER TREE PLANTING RELAY

October 28 @ 6:00 pm - October 29 @ 6:00 pm

24-HOUR VOLUNTEER TREE PLANTING RELAY A.K.A. TREELAY

Every year, the Alliance engages communities, companies, and conservationists to plant thousands of trees in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. We’ve been looking for a big, bold way to celebrate the fantastic tree planting efforts of our volunteers. Hence, The 24-Hour Volunteer Tree Planting Relay also known as Treelay for short. Treelay is a series of volunteer tree plantings scheduled back-to-back over a 24-hour period (hence the relay).

The Alliance’s 2022 Treelay is in its inaugural year, and we plan to kick things off with a bang! We will have nearly 10 plantings throughout the watershed: 6 plantings around the clock in Pennsylvania, and one planting each hosted by our teams in Maryland and Washington, DC.
