The Pittsburgh Redbud Project is an exciting initiative of the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy funded by Colcom Foundation and launched in 2016 to plant thousands of flowering redbud and complementary native trees on trails, hillsides and open spaces in downtown Pittsburgh in view of the city’s riverfronts.

Stop by CJ on either April 13th or 27th for a free seedling, plus some sweet Redbud Project swag. Learn how this project will ill advance this effort with the planting of more than 1,500 trees along the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio rivers to date.

The idea was developed by Frank Dawson, a Pittsburgh-based landscape architect. Frank observed that, “In early spring, when the landscape is still varying hues of brown and grey, the last vestiges of winter, you sporadically come upon the delicate burst of pink of the redbud tree, dappling the tree line.” The main goal of the Pittsburgh Redbud Project is to introduce bursts of spring color to downtown Pittsburgh’s three rivers through the planting of thousands of native redbud trees.
