Volunteer Activities

Planting Trees

Dozens of people volunteer every spring and fall to plant trees with us. We provide hands-on training at every event, so no experience is required to volunteer at our plantings. Individuals, friends, families and groups are invited to join us in putting trees to work for our environment. Children and dogs are welcome, as long as they’re supervised.

Distributing Trees

Hand out hundreds of trees to residents who participate in municipal tree distributions, and use your creative thinking skills to figure out how to fit six-foot trees into tiny sports cars. These events are great for families, friends and other small groups and do require some lifting.

Administrative Assistance

You can help us keep our participants informed and give the community a chance to contribute to our organization by folding letters and stuffing, sealing and stamping envelopes. Or, help keep our administrative expenses low by filing, organizing, and doing research and data entry. It’s a great way for individuals to connect to our programs and further our mission.

Teaching and Training

If you are a Tree Care Advisor, Master Gardener or just someone with a strong interest in trees, you can help us teach and train the volunteers at our planting events – including students at the Learning with Trees school plantings – to do the job right. We’ll ask you to attend our Tree Training in the spring or fall before you take on this advanced role.

Sharing Your Expertise

Do you have training and skills in a specific area like creative or technical writing, graphic design, video production, photography, marketing, law or finance and would like to offer pro bono services? Would you like to lead training on financial management, career options or other employment-related topics for our youth job trainees?
