Join our tree planting team! TreesLouisville is hosting a volunteer training for folks interested in becoming a Canopy Corps member. As a Canopy Corps volunteer, you will have the opportunity to plant trees with us throughout the planting season as well as maintain trees through pruning opportunities in the spring and summer months. Each month we send out an email with volunteer opportunities for people to sign up where they are available.
The training consists of attending 1 Zoom session and 1 in person session. You will be trained by a certified arborist on the best planting practices as well as learn more about Louisville's tree canopy and what you can do to help.

Trees Louisville was launched by Mayor Greg Fischer in March 2015 in partnership with Henry Heuser, Jr. in response to the findings of the 2015 Louisville Urban Tree Canopy Assessment. The purpose of Trees Louisville is to build the necessary support and capacity in the broader community to reach a goal of tree canopy coverage of 45% over the next decades.
TreesLouisville is a 501c(3) dedicated to a more livable and healthy community for future generations through a robust tree canopy throughout Louisville. TreesLouisville is raising the public awareness of our tree canopy deficit and planting trees today in places of greatest need.
TreesLouisville has initiated a groundbreaking partnership with Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) virtually creating mini arboreta across the Louisville community. Beginning in the 2015 fall planting season, TreesLouisville has helped fund and manage the planting of hundreds of trees of a diverse selection of species the majority of which will be of significant landscape size, on 10 JCPS campuses.
With a goal of reaching 10-15 new school campuses annually and with on-going maintenance, this project fits well into TreesLouisville’s mission of having an immediate impact in areas of greatest need that results in life long benefits for future generations.
