The Green Redmond Partnership is building a sustainable network of healthy urban green spaces for the benefit and enjoyment of our entire city. Since 2009, over 12,730 Green Redmond volunteers have dedicated over 34,580 hours to plant 13,195 trees and 24,800 shrubs and small plants throughout 20 different Redmond parks.
Through this program, Green Redmond partners with local communities to recruit, train and support volunteer stewards to lead forest restoration projects. The City aims to build a strong culture of community stewardship, leadership and partnership to support healthy urban forests for everyone. Each city’s program relies on a network of individuals, organizations, staff, and volunteers. All partners are essential for the success of the project.
Healthy forested parks and greenspaces have the power to strengthen neighborhoods, provide safe access to nature, and offer numerous valuable benefits to the environment. The goal of the Green Redmond Program is to implement Redmond's 20-year Forest Management Plan.

Developing a Green Redmond Partnership 20-year guide to share the forest health assessment results and establish goals and strategies for forest restoration and community engagement efforts
