About the Event

 Let's plant trees together in N and NE Portland! Interested in receiving a tree? Click HERE to purchase a tree for your household. Dozens of large (6-10' tall) trees will be ready for planting in their new homes across these neighborhoods, and your help is what makes this community planting possible!

Please arrive by 8:45am to sign-in and enjoy some breakfast snacks and coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. The planting starts at 9:00am. We provide gloves, tools, and guidance. We ask that all volunteers dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes/boots you don't mind getting dirty, and be ready to have fun! Neighborhood volunteers provide a potluck lunch for all volunteers after the planting is complete, it's a small way we can say "thank you" for your hard work. All-gender restrooms are available at this event. 

How do I register? Click here and fill out the quick registration form. Individuals and groups welcome! Please know that groups larger than 4-5 people will be split onto multiple planting crews at this event.  

Have a pickup truck? We need your help getting these young trees to their planting sites a few blocks away from the central staging site. Please sign up at www.friendsoftrees.org/truck if you're able to help us out in this key role.   

This event will have a bike crew! Want to join the team planting trees by bike? Sign up at www.friendsoftrees.org/bike. Bikers with trailers and cargo bikes are awesome but anyone with a bike is welcome to take part!   

Under age 18? A signed youth waiver is required for you to volunteer: www.friendsoftrees.org/youthwaiver We kindly request youth 15 years and younger are accompanied by an adult.  

Please contact Jenny, Pablo, and Carey at 503-595-0213 // volunteer@friendsoftrees.org if you have questions or need any further information. We look forward to seeing you out there!
