Our Citizen Forester Team Leaders lead teams of volunteers at our Community Tree Plantings that take place in the fall and spring. Recognized by their red vests, every Team Leader is given a team of 3 to 5 volunteers and is responsible for the quality of the tree planting and the safety of the team.

This fall we will be planting more trees than ever before and we need your help! If you’re looking to play a greater role in re-treeing D.C. consider registering for our Tree Planting Workshop on Oct 1 and take the first step in becoming a Citizen Forester Team Leader.

To become a Team Leader you must attend a Tree Planting Workshop and work with a Team Leader Mentor at a minimum of two plantings in the same season. Confirmed fall 2016 CTPs are listed below. The Tree Planting Workshop is offered twice a year in March and October. No prior experience is necessary.
