Mission Statement ReTree Schenectady is a non-profit organization dedicated to the planting, care, and conservation of current and future generations of trees in the City of Schenectady. Our goals are achieved by fostering community involvement through education and collaboration with local organizations and businesses.  History ReTree Schenectady was founded in 1991 by concerned citizens of Schenectady, New York. The group was motivated by the rising loss of trees in Schenectady due to aging, disease, or injury. Schenectady had (and continues to have) limited funds for maintaining its urban forest and discontinued its municipal tree planting program in the 1980s.  Since its founding in 1991, ReTree Schenectady has facilitated the planting of over 3,000 trees, trained volunteers to plant and maintain trees, participated in community events to educate the public regarding tree planting and care, and developed a Tree Master Plan for the City of Schenectady. ReTree Schenectady has worked closely with the City of Schenectady. Alliances with other local organizations including Union College, Schenectady High School, Junior ROTC and numerous neighborhood associations have helped tremendously.
