Our History

After noticing the amount of paper that was used at Mansfield High School, two students decided that they wanted to replenish the environment with the resources that their school has taken. They set out with a goal to plant 230 trees in the local community - the number required to make up for the paper consumption at MHS during the 2018-2019 academic year. 

The tree-planting event was a major success. The community came together to plant over 330 trees, exceeding the initial goal! After spreading to another neighboring town and working with environmental advocacy groups, Tree-Plenish is ready to expand its mission to high schools around the country!

Help us achieve our mission by donating to our 501(c)(3) non-profit!
