Volunteer in Salem

Preparing for planting season 22-23 starting in Oct!

Fall Crew Leader Training

Are you interested in planting trees? Do you enjoy working with people? Do you want to hone your leadership skills in a safe outdoor environment?  Consider becoming a Crew Leader!  Friends of Trees is currently recruiting for our Fall 2022 Crew Leader training.  The training consists of an online training you can watch from the comfort of your own home, and an in-person training in Salem on Sat, Oct 29th, 9am-1pm. You’ll learn more about trees, tree-planting, ecological restoration, and how to work with a wide variety of people to make a difference together.

Meet other dedicated people, make an impact, and have fun in this important role!

Space is limited, sign-up today.

Let's plant trees together!

Your help is needed on Saturday mornings, Oct ’22 through May ’23, to plant trees and make a difference greening Salem! Friends of Trees will provide tools, physically-distanced guidance, and some light breakfast snacks. Work gloves will be available to borrow.  For more information on safety protocol and other frequently asked questions, please read our COVID-19 & FAQ page.

Events are held Saturday mornings (9am – 1pm) from October – May — please 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 service learning requirements, and help make the Salem area greener and healthier—all in a few short hours.

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]

We look forward to planting with you this season!
