Description
Let's plant trees together in SE Portland! Interested in receiving a tree? Click HERE to purchase a tree for your household. Dozens of large (6-10' tall) trees will be ready for planting in their new homes across these neighborhoods, and your help is what makes this community planting possible!

Please arrive by 8:45am to sign-in and enjoy some breakfast snacks and coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. The planting starts at 9:00am. We provide gloves, tools, and guidance. We ask that all volunteers dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes/boots you don't mind getting dirty, and be ready to have fun!  Neighborhood volunteers provide a potluck lunch for all volunteers after the planting is complete, it's a small way we can say "thank you" for your hard work. All-gender restrooms are available at this event.

How do I register? Go to the Friends of Trees online calendar to save your place: https://friendsoftrees.org/event-calendar/ Individuals and groups welcome! 

Under age 18? A signed youth waiver is required for you to volunteer: www.friendsoftrees.org/youthwaiver We ask that youth 15 years and younger are accompanied by an adult.

Have a pickup truck? We need your help getting these young trees to their planting sites a few blocks away from the central staging site. Please sign up at www.friendsoftrees.org/truck if you're able to help us out in this key role.

Please contact Jenny, Pablo, and Carey at 503-595-0213 // volunteer@friendsoftrees.org if you have questions or need any further information. We look forward to seeing you out there!
