Friends of Trees is a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to bring people together to plant and care for city trees and green spaces in Pacific Northwest communities.
Friends of Trees is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization which organizes tree planting and care events in neighborhoods, natural areas and on school grounds in partnership with the community, government and businesses.
Since Friends of Trees was founded in 1989, our volunteers have planted more than 500,000 trees and native plants!
I had a good time keeping busy and learning some about the natural habitats of portland. The manual labor was invigorating and it felt good to positively impact my community. The site could have used a little more direction from the friends of trees leadership. But i found things to do despite that.
I volunteered with them in November planting trees in Hillsboro. The people in charge were all nice and serious about the work. The work wasn't exhaustive, but I would suggest to bring a friend along --otherwise, planting trees can become tedious.
