The Redbud Project is a citizen conservation movement to bring awareness to Hall County’s amazingly biodiverse ecosystems of native species plants.  


In the fastest growing region of Georgia, our unique ecology is imperiled by unplanned economic development. By clearcutting tree canopy at an estimated 2,600 acres a year for the past 30 years, we lose quality of life and economic benefits.  

Biodiverse tree canopy adds 7 to 25% to total land value

Urban noise is reduced by 50%

Energy costs are reduced by 30%

Air quality is sustained by trees turning carbon dioxide into oxygen

 Access to nature enhances our mental and physical well-being.   


To inform the community of the vast collection of native species plants, which were marooned in the banks of the Gainesville Ridges millions of years ago by glaciers and upheaval of the Earth’s tectonic plates, volunteers foster awareness of our environmental legacy.
