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 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 dirty.

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 our Volunteer & Outreach team at or 503-595-0213.

We love working with individuals, families, and groups! Please simply RSVP for the event of your choice through our Online Calendar.  Some of our events do fill-up, and registration saves your spot.  Interested in bringing a planting posse? Awesome! You can learn more about how to register as a group on our Group Registration page.
