New Volunteer Arives at the Plant Sale Just in Time!



Our Past

Green Scene is a nonprofit, volunteer organization whose primary mission is providing trees for planting in public areas within Black Hawk County, Iowa. Through our educational programs, symposia, and our involvement with schools, we educate the public about trees and horticulture. We began in 1976 in response to an outbreak of Dutch Elm disease in our area. Today, as a result of income raised through our annual May plant sale, we sponsor tree plantings throughout the county. Our major projects include Arbor Day celebrations, county beautification projects, and street tree planting programs. Over the last 30 years, we've raised well over half a million dollars for these efforts.
