Our Volunteer Roles
Tree planters are our flagship volunteer role and help plant trees at weekend events October through April! We welcome people of all ages and abilities. No previous experience necessary.
Friends of Trees Crew Leaders help lead our planting crews throughout the season. These trained volunteers ensure that our volunteers are safe, have fun, and plant trees correctly to ensure their long-term survival.
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 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.
(Not currently available) Help Tree Recipients select their tree for their upcoming neighborhood planting. Great role for individuals looking to use or improve their phone skills!
