The Leadership Vestavia Hills Project Team seeks to partner with Cahaba Heights residents who lost trees as a result of the April 27th, 2011 tornado that struck the area.  This free tree-planting program is sponsored by Leadership Vestavia Hills to lower summer temperatures for your home, reduce energy consumption, and support homeowners who wish to maintain a green, tree canopy cover for the area.

Target Area – Neighborhood across from Cahaba Heights Elementary School

Woodhaven Circle, Dolly Ridge Drive (west of Dolly Ridge Road), Lewis Street, Dolly Ridge Lane, Greenview Road, and Dolly Ridge Road between 280 and Manor Brook Drive
