About

Get ready to beautify your neighborhood with awesome trees! We are always looking for folks to come and help out with Friends of Trees planting events. No tree planting experience needed, just a willingness to learn about trees! We will be planting in the neighborhoods of Argay, Parkrose, Parkrose Heights, Russell, and Wilkes.

Please arrive to the staging site by 8:45am to enjoy breakfast treats and hot coffee or chocolate. The planting starts promptly at 9:00am. We provide gloves and tools, so all you need to do is show up dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy shoes or boots. Our neighborhood volunteers will also provide a potluck lunch for all volunteers after the planting is complete.

Looking to volunteer as a group? RSVPs are kindly requested for groups of more than 5 people - copy and paste this link http://www.friendsoftrees.org/volunteering/group-registration to do so. RSVPs are not required for individuals or groups of 4 or fewer -- you can simply show up!

For any volunteer under the age of 18 who will be planting WITHOUT their guardian, a pre-signed liability waiver is required on the day of the event. To get a copy of this waiver, feel free to contact the Volunteer & Outreach team!

Please contact Jenny or Pablo at (503) 595-0213 if you have any questions or need more information.
