About the Canopy Tree Awards

Each year, the Canopy Tree Awards acknowledge volunteers, leaders, and partners who have made significant contributions to our local urban forests and communities:

  • Arnold Soforenko Award recognizes significant efforts to grow or preserve urban trees, especially through thoughtful development, design, or policy.
  • Out-on-a-Limb Award recognizes outstanding urban forestry volunteer efforts.
  • Young Forester Award recognizes young people who exemplify environmental stewardship through service, education, and leadership.
  • Community Roots Award recognizes leaders and institutions who inspire meaningful community engagement in the local urban forest.
  • Canopy Chair Award recognizes outstanding work by an individual to advance Canopy’s mission. It’s not awarded every year, but rather when a special person or project calls for it.
