Bucks Beautifulʼs newest initiative began in 2018 as a direct result of accumulated effects over the past decade of disease, invasive insects and storm damage on Bucks County’s aging tree canopy. As this has been devastating to witness, we are committed to lead the way in facilitating the reforestation of our local communities. The goal of RePlant Bucks is the planting of 10,000 new trees throughout Bucks County. Partnering with local nurseries and landscapers, 1,526 trees have already been installed in seventeen select locations throughout the County. The reforestation will ultimately consist of native oaks, tulips, poplars, evergreens, sugar maples, shagbark hickories, chestnuts and red maples.

Local Landscaper’s Pledge to RePlant Bucks
Colin Slota, owner of Slota’s Property Maintenance in Holland, PA, has pledged for every ten trees sold for clients, he will donate a tree through RePlant Bucks. The trees will be a native species that is balled in burlap or in a 15-gallon container. He will include a gator bag (a slow drip watering system) and provide free installation in an approved location. Slota, a local landscaper who has already donated countless volunteer hours to the community states, “I hope to harness this pledge to ultimately plant many trees for this awesome organization. I’m optimistic that this initiative will inspire other people and landscapers to make contributions to help grow and bring more awareness to this nonprofit. Let’s keep Bucks Beautiful!”

RePlant Bucks Receives $25,000 Grant
Beautiful received a $25,000 grant from The Bucks County Industrial Development Authority in partnership with the County of Bucks to fund its RePlant Bucks initiative. This important collaborative was represented by the planting of a red maple tree and the donation of 500 daffodils from our signature Bulbs for Bucks program. The grant will enable Bucks Beautiful to install young trees in an effort to compliment various community projects, including Morrisville Borough’s development of “Patriots Park at Historic Summerseat.”
