Camden Urban Airshed Reforestation Program
The 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 84,000 square feet of impervious surface to plant 5,561 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. To date, the UARP has engaged approximately 11,675 volunteers from all walks of life in beautifying one of the nation’s most dangerous cities.
The NJ Tree Foundation is a member of Camden SMART, helping reduce flooding and combined system overflows by implementing green infrastructure projects.
Thank you to MAFCO and United Water Camden for donating mulch and offloading services at every Camden planting.
