WHY VOLUNTEER WITH US

  • Growing and caring for our urban forest is one of the most effective actions you can take to fight climate change and create environmental and health benefits for our city.

  • Volunteering with others in the community is a fun and social way to contribute to a worthy cause.

  • ​Volunteers tell us it brings them lasting joy and satisfaction to see the trees and sidewalk gardens they planted grow and flourish over time.​

 

We plant trees, install sidewalk gardens, and make tree care visits year-round in a variety of neighborhoods. Our planting events generally run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m on Saturdays. 

 

Tree Planting: Led by our staff and volunteer Planting Leaders, volunteers assist in planting 5 to 7 trees at each event.

 

Sidewalk Garden: Led by our staff, volunteers prepare the sidewalk and plant 8 to 10 native plants.

Tree Care: Volunteers work with our staff to assess the health of the trees, ensure that supporting stakes and ties are sound, and prune the trees as needed. 

 

Other: We also recruit volunteers for outreach and advocacy. 

Our Volunteer Waiver outlines the terms and conditions under which you will volunteer with us. It covers important aspects of liability, confidentiality, and code of conduct. 

CORPORATE GROUPS

Corporate workdays are a fun opportunity for groups to engage in team-building and fulfill corporate social responsibility goals while benefiting the environment.
