Saturday Tree Planter

Where: Tree Planters are needed in all of the regions we work in. If you’re in the Portland‐MetroVancouverSalem, or Eugene areas, we could use your help!

When: Tree Planters are needed each Saturday morning from October through April. Our planting events run from 9am – 1pm and we ask that volunteers arrive by 8:45am to be assigned a crew and enjoy some free breakfast treats and hot coffee/chocolate! In addition to free treats to fuel you up, Friends of Trees also provides gloves (youth sizes, too!), tools and tree planting guidance from a trained Crew Leader. Please come dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy, closed-toe shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting a little muddy.

More About this Role: Tree planters are at the root of the work that we do. Each planter helps plant trees at weekend events between October and April. We welcome people of all ages and abilities. No previous experience is necessary. We provide gloves, tools and guidance…just dress appropriately for the weather and wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes.

If you have any questions about this role or an event, please feel free to contact Jenny or Pablo with our Volunteer & Outreach team at or 503-595-0213.

We Love Groups! Interested in bringing a Planting Posse? Awesome! If your group is five or more volunteers, we ask that your RSVP via our Group Registration Form. If you are fewer than five, no need to pre-register, you can simply show up in time for breakfast treats and hot coffee/chocolate!
