Tree Team volunteers


The Sierra Club Tree Team is looking for a volunteer who can aid our tree planting team by receiving trees from nurseries and distributing them around town, as well as preparing the work-orders and crew assignments and then delegating tasks and maintaining equipment. Volunteer tasks will include communicating with Coordinator, meeting nursery trucks or picking up trees, briefly inspecting trees for health, and distributing trees to locations for planting. Travel around Oakland and/or to local nurseries (up to 40 miles each way) will be required for this position, and volunteers with access to a truck are preferred.

Typical time commitment: Several hours around each event. One order of trees is usually enough for 1-2 events. Meeting a truck takes 1-3 hours (nurseries announce the delivery time on the previous day and they may be as early as 7am). A pickup takes 3-4 hours on a morning or midday. Distributions take 2-4 hours on the day of the event or the day before, depending on the number of trees.
