Fund to Reforest Bay Village

Between 2011 and 2017, the City of Bay Village lost 8% of its tree canopy, a rate higher than the county average, according to the Cuyahoga County Urban Tree Canopy Assessment Update 2019. This fund is an attempt to slow that tree canopy loss in Bay Village by funding new trees on public property. Please donate to The Bay Village Green Team's Fund to Reforest Bay Village. Your entire donation will directly purchase native trees to plant in public areas throughout the City of Bay Village. The city's cost per tree is @$260 per tree, however any donation amount is appreciated and will be combined with other donations to purchase trees. Donations are transferred to the city by The Bay Village Green Team once per year minimum in a public city council meeting. You can donate through one of two methods below:
