About

Join the Tree Team and help turn San Jose from grey to green!

In an effort to extend the urban canopy cover in San Jose, Our City Forest has partnered up with San Jose Department of Transportation and Cal Trans to add new shade trees to medians and public streets throughout the city.

We are currently seeking medium-sized corporate or community groups available during the week to assist with these projects. Dates are somewhat flexible - Wednesday, Thursday or Friday - and projects will take approximately three hours (9am to 12pm).

Ongoing projects in need of assistance:

  • Lundy Ave & Geyser Dr (sponsored by Department of Transportation): 6 trees to be planted by October 27
  • Meridian Ave (sponsored by CalTrans): 9 trees in the median
  • Zanker Rd (sponsored by Department of Transportation): 5 trees
No prior planting experience is required to volunteer and all materials will be provided by Our City Forest. AmeriCorps members will serve as coaches to guide and assist planting volunteers. Groups will be recognized on Our City Forest's social media accounts.

Interested? Please contact catherine@ourcityforest.org.

We look forward to hearing from you!
