It’s the 50th anniversary of Earth Day this year. Friends of Trees was planning to celebrate in our usual fashion: Planting trees. Together. But, like everyone, our plans changed.
We would, of course, prefer to be outside with you. But since we can’t we have some really special virtual tree treats for you.
Since trees and nature can be so comforting, the Friends of Trees staff contributed to Earth Day with some homemade tree talk videos; we’re hoping these will tide you over until we can plant trees with you again. Below is a selection of our work, you can find the entire playlist here (we’ll be adding more, so check back!).
In honor of Earth Day’s 50th anniversary Friends of Trees is hosting a virtual, day-long celebration on our social media channels – it’s the virtual EARTH DAY PARTY WITH THE TREE TEAM! Tune in on Wednesday, April 22, beginning at 10 a.m. We’ll have Tree Talks, LIVE tree walks, and more! Here’s the schedule, and here’s the agenda for the virtual Earth Day party hosted by Friends of Trees Eugene!
THANK YOU to the sponsors of the Earth Day Party with the Tree Team!
Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day with the Eugene Tree Team – virtually!

Friends of Trees congratulates Collier Arbor Care for taking care of trees in the Northwest for 75 years. The company’s public anniversary celebration will be on April 27, National Arbor Day.
This ad in the Living section of today’s Oregonian features Terrill Collier, his son Quentin, and their dog, Wizard.
“The trees we’re planting today will shade my family and others for generations to come. This is especially significant to us this year, as we celebrate 75 years of caring for trees in northwest communities.”
– Terrill Collier, Collier Arbor Care, Board Certified Master Arborist
Thank you, Collier Arbor Care and The Oregonian, for your generous support for Friends of Trees’ community tree-planting projects!

Join Friends of Trees as we celebrate spring at our annual Fruit Tree Giveaway and Large Tree Sale!
The event, which is sponsored by Symantec, will be Saturday, April 21, at 3117 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. This is a great opportunity to get some young bare-root fruit trees for your yard and support a great organization.
Fruit trees are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and Friends of Trees suggests a minimum $5 donation per fruit tree. Trees cannot be reserved or held in advance, so you must be present on Saturday to purchase your tree.
