Salem Crew Leader Online Training

SALEM CREW LEADER TRAINING

Available Online: October 15th - October 29th, 2021

WELCOME!

Thank you for joining us as a Friends of Trees Planting Crew Leader!

Our planting programs plant upwards of 50,000 trees and native shrubs every year, and we couldn’t do it without the help of dedicated volunteers like you. Thank you for volunteering your time and for joining the Friends of Trees Crew Leader community. Friends of Trees has two planting programs in Salem: Green Space and Neighborhood  Trees. Green Space plants primarily small stock native trees and shrubs in natural spaces and riparian corridors, and Neighborhood Trees plants larger stock trees at people’s homes and in public parks. As a Salem Crew Leader, you will have the opportunity to co-lead crews for both programs. While this virtual training primarily covers the Green Space Program, we will make sure to give you the rundown on Neighborhood Trees at our in-person event on October 30!

We will always strive to be a welcoming and safe place for everyone, regardless of age, ability, race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic status, or any other identity that makes us unique. We really appreciate that you are taking the time to complete this training at home, and we look forward to meeting you on October 30 at our training event!

CREW LEADER HANDBOOK

This handbook contains all of the information covered in this training, and more!

EDI TOOL KIT

The EDI Toolkit is a great educational resource to review prior to your first planting! It includes readings and provides a lot of tools that you can implement while you are working with others!

SPECIES ID CARDS

These cards will be available for you to utilize as an educational resource on planting day! We recommend that you check them out so that you can familiarize yourself with the plants we will be working with prior to your first planting!

ECOSYSTEM COMPONENTS

We recognize that ecosystem ecology is, by its very nature, incredibly complex. Most of our Crew Leaders are not trained ecologists or biologists and, for many, these concepts are new. For these reasons, we have developed an Ecosystem Component framework to assist Crew Leaders in providing a quality educational experience. This document outlines the five Ecosystem Components, as well as information on how they are connected and interrelated.

HONORING NATIVE LANDS

A Land Acknowledgment is a simple, powerful way of showing respect and taking a step toward correcting the stories and practices that erase Indigenous people’s history and culture and toward inviting and honoring the truth. At Friends of Trees, we believe it is important to conduct land acknowledgements for many reasons. The first is that we consider ourselves to be environmental stewards of this land by increasing the greenery and conducting ecological restoration. It is important to recognize the history, systems, and forces that have lead us to the situation we have on our lands today. Colonization seized this land, settler colonialism continues to govern it without permission, and white supremacy upholds our status quo. A lot of the degradation that has happened to our lands through construction of concrete jungles, the oil drilling industry, and through capitalistic endeavors is through the history of colonization and genocide. We must recognize the history of the lands we are trying to improve and restore and how we wouldn’t be in this situation if it weren’t for colonization and capitalism degrading our environment. Naming the first peoples of this land is an important first step to understand the ecological and environmental relationship we have to this place and our position and abilities to make it better.

Get to Know Crew Leaders

GOOD JOB! I love being a Crew Leader and I love Friends of Trees. FOT Crew leader

If you are looking for a way to combat climate change and create a more equitable community, you might just be a future Friends of Trees Crew Leader!

If you want to lead the public to plant trees in parks and neighborhoods and you don’t mind working in the mud and rain, then you might be ready to become a Friends of Trees Crew Leader! And we hope you do — all are welcome!

I love being part of this organization and appreciate all the work you do, and how you make it possible for me to contribute in a meaningful way. Thank you. FOT CL

As a Crew Leader, you will join a friendly family of trained volunteers to lead a safe, positive planting experience for volunteers throughout western Oregon and southwest Washington. If you love being outdoors rain or shine and you believe that everyone deserves equal access to the benefits of trees, this might just be the role for you! Learn more and register for the required training here.  Space is limited.

Crew Leaders volunteer several times during our planting season that runs October – April. No experience or special knowledge or education are necessary! As a CL you’ll learn everything you need to know about planting trees at the CL training, and you’ll in turn share that information with teams of community volunteers. You’ll help plant trees, teach and lead others, you’ll move & lift trees and tools, and you’ll play a key role in events that really make a difference!

Every interaction I have ever had with FOT staff and volunteer leaders has been positive and welcoming. And thank you for welcoming my daughter to participate and allowing her to learn and take part in this awesome work! FOT CL

Crew Leaders are particularly needed in Salem, Washington County, Oregon City, Wilsonville, Milwaukie, and Vancouver — these are the areas where we have the most planting events scheduled in the upcoming Oct ’21-May ’22 season. If you’re willing to travel to these areas, that counts too! We’ll be planting at other locations in Multnomah and Clackamas Counties as well, but have fewer events.

Ready to learn more? We’d love to welcome you to the Crew Leader Tree Team!

Crew Leader Resources

Crew Leader Resources

Greetings Crew Leaders!

As the folks who make our plantings happen and represent FOT in our neighborhoods, you are the backbone of the important work we are doing to bring trees to the neighborhoods that need them most. We want to provide you with additional learning opportunities — information about the trees we plant, environmental justice, and some just-for-fun stuff. We’ll be adding to this page over time, so consider it a work in progress. We hope you find it useful!

- What does planting day look like this year?

Planting day will look a bit different this season due to new COVID-19 precautions. We put together this short video to hopefully explain exactly what Crew Leaders can expect, and what we ask of you to prepare. It would be helpful to review this video prior to your first event to ensure that you are aware of all of our changes! This video includes some notes about:

  1. Our COVID safety guidelines
  2. Recommendations for what to pack on planting day
  3. Planting day schedule

This video is a short excerpt from our 2020 Virtual Assistant Crew Leader Training. If you’d like to view the entire training, visit: friendsoftrees.org/news-resources/crew-leader-online-training/.

- COVID Guidelines

Veteran Crew Leaders – we listened to your feedback and incorporated your recommendations when designing our new planting model. Below are some of the COVID safety practices we will be following this season.

Please do your best to demonstrate these safety rules for others — to help keep everyone safe!

  • We require everyone at our events to properly wear a face mask that completely covers the nose and chin, and is snug around the edges.
  • We recommend bringing a face shield as well! Not only will they provide an added layer of protection, but they will hopefully help to keep your mask dry in the rain!
  • Masks will be available at the staging site if you forget yours.
  • Please respect physical distancing.
  • If rain is forecasted, we will have a couple of canopies and umbrellas, but dress accordingly to stay warm and dry.
  • Remember – a tree stake is 6′ long!
  • FOT will sanitize tools before use or let them rest for 5 days.
  • Gloves and vests will be washed prior to every event.
  • Expect to begin at a starting point, the Start Zone, where you will meet a staff person (purple vest) who will greet you, ask you a couple of Covid-related health questions, and point out the next stations to visit before hanging out and waiting for the huddle
  • There will be signage that highlights safety reminders, and will guide you through our outdoor space, to help facilitate spacing to help keep everyone safe.
  • Trees will not be at the staging site on planting day. All trees will be pre-delivered by FOT staff prior to the planting event.
  • Crews will consist of 2-3 Planting Crew Leaders.
  • We ask that you refrain from carpooling with anyone outside your household. If needed, staff can deliver tools to your first site.
  • Be prepared to chat with your partner prior to leaving the staging site, to discuss your preference of keeping tool use separate and not sharing, or letting your partner know that you are comfortable with sharing tools. We want you to know that it’s ok to have this conversation because we want to feel comfortable and safe.
  • We will only have water and pre-packaged snacks available. (We miss the big spread too, but keeping us all safe is far more important!)
  • Some events may have coffee or tea available, but we  cannot guarantee it at every event.

We recommend packing the following:

  • Umbrella
  • Lunch or snacks
  • Water bottle
  • You are welcome to bring your own tools and gloves if you would feel more comfortable!
  • We ask that if you do not feel well, or have been around someone that is unwell, that you cancel your volunteer shift. (We will do the same, as staff.)
  • It’s ok to miss your shift!

- Tree Planting

Ten Step Container Tree

Container trees are some of the most common nursery stock planted by Friends of Trees, as they are available year-round from nurseries.

When planting a container-grown tree, our focus is on preventing circling roots and making sure the tree is planted at the right depth. Neighborhood Trees Specialist Haley Miller shows us the ins and outs of planting container-grown tree stock, with extra time demonstrating how to find the tree’s root flare.

Guest starring the Royal Raindrops crabapple.

How to plant a Ball & Burlap Tree

Ball and Burlap trees are field-grown, and they are only available when they can be dug up — after the trees have gone dormant for the fall.

When planting Ball and Burlap trees, our focus is on keeping the rootball intact and planting at the right depth. FOT alums Kris Hikari and Susie Peterson show us how to properly plant Ball and Burlap tree stock. Brighton West explains the tilt and tuck method to remove the tree’s burlap and the stake leveling technique to make sure your root flare is at the soil level.
