Volunteer planters (and groups!) always needed


Salem Volunteer Tree Planting

We organize public tree planting events every Saturday morning from October - May and we always need help planting the trees. Planting with Friends of Trees is a great way to get outside, learn how to plant trees, meet people, fulfill service learning requirements and help make the Salem region greener and healthier - all at once!

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 more than 5 people - please click HERE to do so.

If you're under 18 years old, please 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!
