Trees Inc., a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation, was created by a group of civic leaders in 1983 to raise funds to beautify the borough of Pottstown, Pennsylvania, with new street trees. During a five-year fundraising campaign from 1983 to 1988 sponsored by the Pottstown Mercury, the group raised nearly $500,000 to plant and maintain street trees.

Over the years, the organization has expanded its mission to promote best practices in urban forestry.
