Considerate development

Our Piedmont woods are full of wonderful plants - wild flowers, herbs, ferns, and a variety of flowering and fruiting shrubs and trees. But every year more of these plants are lost beneath the blade of the bulldozer.

The Plant Rescue project was formed in 1998 by the Forsyth County Master Gardener Volunteers with the simple goal of saving plants that would otherwise be destroyed by development. So far we have relocated over 20,000 plants.

We move what we can to a safe place where they can continue to grow and thrive. You can help by calling us. All we need is written permission from the land owner or another person in authority to enter the property and remove plants.
