Print Newsletters Index

In 1992, the Savannah Tree Foundation began regularly producing a print newsletter for our members, partners, community planners, elected officials and the like. The print newsletter was discontinued in 2009 in favor of a new printed Annual Report combined with quarterly email newsletters. Due to bandwidth limitations, the newsletters themselves are not provided here in their entirety, but we are happy to provide you with digital copies upon request. The first request is free, thereafter the cost is $1.00 per issue.

State of the Trees reports
