The purpose of the NCUFC Legacy Tree Fund is to provide financial assistance to communities across North Carolina for tree planting projects that help educate North Carolina citizens about the importance of trees and the role they play in improving air and water quality, reducing energy costs, increasing real estate values, providing wildlife habitat, and creating opportunities for residents to relax and enjoy nature.
Each year, the NCUFC awards grants to community groups, civic associations, block clubs, garden clubs, and other non-profit organizations for urban forestry projects involving tree planting.
