Volunteer in Salem

It's planting season!

Let's plant trees together!

Help needed on Saturday mornings, Oct ’23 through May ’24, to plant trees and make a difference greening Salem! Friends of Trees will provide tools, gloves, guidance, and some light breakfast snacks.

Events are held Saturday mornings (9am – 1pm) from October-April (sign-up – these trees don’t plant themselves!). Planting with Friends of Trees is a great way to get outside with your friends or family (or by yourself!), learn how to plant trees, meet people, fulfill community service requirements, and help make the Salem area greener and healthier—all in a few short hours. More volunteer information available on our Volunteer FAQ page.

Volunteer as a group!

Friends of Trees welcomes groups to volunteer together at our planting events! Planting trees with your group is fun, promotes group bonding and team-building, and is a great way to give back to the community. One person from the group may register the full group, simply visit the online calendar and fill out the registration form for that event, indicating the number of people in the group. Depending on your group size, we may need to split the group up into smaller planting crews. If you have any questions about which event is right for your group, please don’t hesitate to be in touch with our Volunteer & Outreach team: [email protected]
