Calling all tree-planters!  Our community tree planting events are held Saturday mornings (9am - 1pm) from November - April and we always need more help! Planting with Friends of Trees is a great way to get outside with your friends or family (or by yourself!), learn how to plant trees, meet people, fulfill service learning requirements, and help make the Salem area greener and healthier - all in a few short hours!

Volunteer as a group! Friends of Trees planting events are excellent ways for groups to learn team-building skills, have fun together and give back to the community.  RSVPs are kindly requested for groups of 5 or more people - please click HERE to do so.

If you're under 18 years old, we require you bring a signed copy of our Youth Waiver with you to the event.

Want to be notified of an upcoming volunteer event in your neck of the woods? Fill out our Salem Volunteer Interest Form!

We look forward to planting with you this season!
