Meeting our $3,000 goal today means that in just one day we’re 20% closer to bridging our tree gap in southwest Washington–and bridging our tree gap means everyone in our southwest Washington service area who wants a tree, gets a tree. When you donate to Friends of Trees with Give More 24 you are helping your neighbors get trees. Thank you for helping make this happen! Would you like a tree of your own? Get started here to get a tree.

Friends of Trees has been planting trees and growing community in Southwest Washington since 2003, and we’ve engaged local volunteers to plant 6,700 trees in here. In our last planting season, 600 volunteers donated more than 2,000 hours to plant 460 trees at 11 volunteer tree planting events in Vancouver and Clark County. Of course, our planting season this year will look a bit different as we respect social distancing and group size limits — but rest assured, we’ll still be planting trees and we’ll still be engaging with volunteers, You can learn more about what our volunteer events will look like this season here.

Friends of Trees plants 50,000+ trees and native shrubs every year throughout Western Oregon and Southwest Washington. Thanks to generous support from friends like you we’ve planted more than 850,000 trees and native shrubs in hundreds of neighborhoods and natural areas since 1989.

You can feel good about donating to Friends of Trees because all donations plant trees and bring people together.

Thank you for supporting trees + community!
