CTree Kits include:
- Trees in a variety of species and stock sizes for shade, reforestation, etc.

Carla Hardy West Virginia Project CommuniTree (CTree) promotes tree planting and education on public land through volunteerism in the Potomac Headwaters of West Virginia (Berkeley, Grant, Hampshire, Hardy, Jefferson, Mineral, Morgan, & Pendleton counties). The program also focuses on enhancing and promoting awareness of watershed and riparian area needs such as storm water management, water quality issues, buffer zone planting, and soil erosion.
The project is entirely volunteer based and engages stakeholders in the process of making priority decisions within their respective communities and offers a strong educational message along with a physical planting component. CommuniTree is a program of the WV Conservation Agency and the WV Potomac Tributary Team that is engaged in on-the-ground actions throughout the Potomac headwaters.
CTree is designed so any volunteer group or public entities, regardless of experience, can apply for help from CTree and the WV Division of Forestry. We want your group to apply and join the growing number of volunteers who are making their communities more beautiful and health by planting trees.
