Reforest Northern Kentucky is an annual, all-volunteer project organized by NKUCFC to restore native Kentucky woodlands. The reforestation project is responsible for planting thousands of tree seedlings on public, protected, and previously-mowed properties in Boone, Campbell, and Kenton Counties.
Reforest NKY is an opportunity for public education and awareness about the importance of trees in our unique region. By planting trees, our forest landscape and legacy is restored. Trees and forest provide significant, measurable benefits to our communities by improving the environment, economy, and ultimately our quality of life.
Since 2007, more than 40 acres (that’s 30 football fields!) of land have been planted with native woodland trees and over 2,500 volunteers have participated in Reforest NKY.

Watch our Reforest NKY video!
This video was made possible by Numediacy.
Our former President Crystal Courtney dives deep into what Reforest NKY means to us, our community, and our landscape.
This video was filmed in 2014 at St. Anne Convent - Sisters of Divine Providence in Campbell County, KY. Though it was raining, we had around 200 volunteers show up to plant our trees!
Be sure to join us next time for our "party for trees"!
