Partnering with Friends of Trees is great: for business, for the environment, for community

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

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.
