Bucks Beautiful is a local grass roots 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that coordinates events, community projects, educational programs and partners with like-minded community organizations to develop sustainable landscapes that are not only attractive but will support and foster a healthier environment.
Since 1990 we have worked to enhance the local landscape for residents and visitors alike by beautifying towns, schools, parks, roadsides and pathways throughout Bucks County.
In 2018, Bucks Beautiful began our new initiative, RePlant Bucks, to lead the way in facilitating the reforestation of local communities.
Due to the recent hazardous effects of disease and insects on the tree canopy, entire stands of dead trees have been cut down.
With support from community donations RePlant Bucks was able to plant 1,000 native trees at local parks, historical sites and schools in the first year of the program.
Donations are welcome to help reach the goal of planting 10,000 trees for future generations.
Bucks Beautiful has partnered with the Henry Schmieder Arboretum at Delaware Valley University to present Spring and Fall series of educational lectures led by regionally renowned gardening experts.
Speakers and topics can be found on the Bucks Beautiful website.
Upcoming events include:
*Bulbs for Bucks Daffodil Tour – April through May:

Bucks Beautiful has planted more than 1,400,000 daffodil bulbs in public areas.
