What is a Tree Team?
Tree Teams are groups of dedicated volunteers from different neighborhoods or communities who care about their neighborhood/community trees. Tree Teams work with Urban Forestry staff to plan tree events in neighborhoods, such as educational workshops, neighborhood tree walks or tree stewardship activities- like tree pruning workdays or even community tree plantings. Tree Teams also represent trees at neighborhood association meetings and serve as a connection between Urban Forestry and neighbors.
