Tree Planter

You believe in the big impact of one-time efforts. You may want to plant with a group, your family, or by yourself and meet new people! You want to green your local park or neighborhood.

Planting season runs from October 2022 through April 2023.

Crew Leader

You believe that the benefits of trees belong to all people and communities, and are willing to volunteer several times in the next year toward this cause. You are comfortable moving & lifting trees and tools. You have a desire to teach others and lead small groups from the public.

Truck Driver

Volunteers with pick-up trucks and trailers help transport trees to their new homes! Volunteer truck drivers carry trees, tools, and supplies on planting day to support a crew of planters at our Saturday morning events.

Bike Planter

Bike planters transport & plant trees with their pedal power. Bikers with or without trailers are welcome to join and plant at select Saturday events. Pre-registration is highly recommended.
