Meet Our Business Partners

Partnering with Friends of Trees is good for business, good for the planet, good for our community

64% of Friends of Trees volunteers would “definitely” or “more likely” support a business if it provided financial support to Friends of Trees.*

That’s really something to think about, particularly considering that we work with 7,000+ volunteers every year! (*source: FOT volunteer survey)

There are a number of ways your business can partner with Friends of Trees to support community tree-planting:

  • Sponsor a Friends of Trees planting event! Sponsorship reaches the broadest audience and plants the most trees. Sponsorship comes with a number of benefits; we’ll work with you to create the best partnership possible.
  • Become a Business Partner. We can create a partnership that is mutually beneficial—and remember, when you support Friends of Trees, all donations plant trees and grow community.
  • Need an employee team-building event? Learn about our private employee events here.


Your support of Friends of Trees delivers a triple bottom line—and then some—because when you sponsor a tree-planting event with us:

  • You reach an engaged, supportive audience.
  • You’re helping increase the urban tree canopy and restore sensitive natural areas.
  • You’re building community through supporting events that bring together thousands of volunteers.
  • You have access to a turn-key event that is great for employee team-building and volunteer opportunities.
  • You’re giving back to your community.


Promoting our partnership—to consider:

  • 6,000+ unique volunteers at Friends of Trees events every year throughout Western Oregon and Southwest Washington
  • 20,000 Treemail (e-newsletter) recipients
  • 15,000 Facebook followers
  • 9,500 Twitter followers
  • 4,400 Instagram followers
    • 380,000 page views and 100,000 unique users annually
    • High domain authority and ranking (per Google)
