RETREET is a kaleidoscopic group of bicycle and tree enthusiasts with strong backs, sharp minds, and big hearts who volunteer to replant communities whose trees have been lost to natural disaster.
RETREET redefines disaster relief by engaging communities to replant lost trees.
RETREET is a 501(c)(3) public charity founded by a motivated group of arborists, cyclists, and project managers. Our organization provides disaster relief to stricken communities on a local, national, and international level by leading volunteers in restoring decimated urban forests. There is no other agency solely focused on this widely neglected issue, and most disaster victims do not have the time, money, and ability to replant their own lost trees. Through direct action and community engagement, we offer a unique solution to an urgent problem at a relatively low cost.
OUR CORE VALUES:
In sum, our mission is to augment diminished communities with excited volunteers who have traveled in to aid locals in the rebuilding process by planting powerful symbols of hope that will impact the urban environment for generations to come.
