Volunteer Opportunities

“He who
plants a tree,
plants hope.”

Author and Educator

At Tree Trust, we believe trees are superheroes.

They cool our neighborhoods from the hot summer sun, soak up stormwater, reduce crime and
lead the way in helping reduce the effects of climate change in our communities.
