Greening the Gateway Cities Program

Greening the Gateway Cities Program

The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation’s Greening the Gateway Cities Program (GGCP) is an urban tree planting program designed to reduce household heating and cooling energy use. A healthy urban forest also cleans the water we drink and the air we breathe, and contributes to neighborhood stability and overall quality of life. They are especially important to plant in neighborhoods that have lower existing canopy coverage, older housing stock, higher wind speeds, and a larger renter population.
