Tree Teams

What is a Tree Team?

Tree Teams are groups of dedicated volunteers who care about and for their neighborhood's trees. Tree Teams work with Urban Forestry to plan tree events in neighborhoods, such as educational workshops, tree walks, or tree stewardship activities such as pruning or planting. Tree Teams also represent and advocate for trees at neighborhood association meetings and serve as a connection between Urban Forestry and neighbors. 

Your friends at PP&R Urban Forestry offer support for Tree Teams by:

Find Your Tree Team - Connect with your Tree Team and learn about what they do. If your neighborhood doesn't have one, learn how to start a new Tree Team.

Learn about the Neighborhood Tree Steward Program - Take your Tree Team leadership to the next level by participating in this seven session course offered every fall.
