Camden Urban Airshed Reforestation Program

1441313_10152100824208273_1911725257_nThe Urban Airshed Reforestation Program (UARP) is a community-based street tree planting program that began in Camden in 2002. Designed to improve air quality, manage stormwater and provide shade, the UARP has removed approximately 83,00 square feet of impervious surface to plant 5,400 trees along Camden streets. Prioritizing grassroots work, the UARP empowers residents to create positive changes in their own communities. Residents apply for and adopt trees, help organize events, and assist with the planting of each tree.  In the same vein, the UARP has engaged approximately 11,440 volunteers from all walks of life in beautifying one of the nation’s most dangerous cities.
