Current Volunteer Roles:

- Saturday Tree Care

- Tree Team Ambassador








Our most popular volunteer role is as a Saturday tree planter or tree care volunteer. Our events occur almost every Saturday from 9am-1pm and run October - April where you'd be able to simply show up care for trees. We provide coffee and breakfast treats, as well as gloves, tools and trained volunteer guidance.

No experience is necessary and all we ask is that volunteers show up in a timely fashion dress appropriately for the weather. Check out our online calendar for more details and come out and have fun with us!

Bring your family, scout group, or coworker group! We just ask that you fill out this Group Registration Form.

Tree Team Ambassadors

Tree Team Ambassadors help extend the voice of Friends of Trees by attending community outreach events. Ideal candidates are comfortable speaking in public, thrive in fast-paced, social environments and have a genuine interest starting tree-positive conversations with individuals and groups.

There are some key pieces of information that we feel all Tree Team Ambassadors need to succeed and a Thursday, June 4th evening training is required. Once trained, all Ambassadors receive our trademark "Tree Team" t-shirts and join the fun at summer outreach events on weekdays and weekends between the months of June -August.

If you'd like to learn more, and even sign up for this role, head on over to our Tree Team Abassador Registration Form to save your seat. Spaces are limited!
