AboutFriends of Trees

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. Since it was founded by Richard Seidman in 1989, Friends of Trees has planted nearly half a million trees and native plants.

Through the Neighborhood Trees program, homeowners buy discounted trees to plant with their neighbors at weekend plantings. Through the Green Space Initiative, trained crew leaders guide volunteers at weekend events to restore green spaces.
