Resources for volunteer recruitment

Volunteer support is essential in the successful completion of your neighborhood's street tree inventory. Not only will data collection move quickly with many helping hands; the involvement of your neighbors and community will encourage a greater sense of collective tree stewardship and neighborhood stewardship. Feel free to use the following resources to help you recruit volunteers for inventory workdays!

This list includes a template for Spanish-language flyers. If you would like other outreach materials translated in Spanish or other languages, please contact us at and allow for a 2-week turnaround time.   

Resources for creating and implementing tree plans

You and your neighbors have inventoried hundreds of trees, and Urban Forestry staff have laid out all of the analyses in a report. Now what? These results will be presented at the Tree Inventory Summit in November.

You, your Tree Team, and other fellow volunteers will have the opportunity to go through the data and set some goals for the improvement of your neighborhood's urban forest. This will ultimately lead to creating a Tree Plan for your neighborhood, which can be used as a tool to guide your future tree stewardship activities and as an outreach tool to your community.

Urban Forestry is delighted to collaborate with you and your team on coordinating and executing stewardship activities. Check out these resources to help guide you on your next steps!  

Funding Sources

Are you and your team ready to seek funding for long-term projects? In addition to Urban Forestry's funding and resources, explore these local grants for additional ways to fund your tree stewardship projects.
