About

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 the Tree Team Coordinator
  • Meeting nursery trucks or picking up trees
  • Briefly inspecting trees for health
  • 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.
