Thank you for your continued interest in our program and Edmonton’s urban forest.

Due to the COVID-19 situation and for the protection of your health and safety, we are suspending all scheduled volunteer shifts and special events until further notice. Please continue to check back for programming updates.

These self-guided volunteer shifts are designed for small groups of 2-9 people. Plant when it is convenient for you!

We provide:

  • Up to 100 native seedlings
  • Up to 9 shovels and pairs of gloves
  • A container to transport materials
  • A pamphlet outlining safety practices and planting techniques and standards
  • Other safety related materials

Materials are to be picked up from our office, where one of our staff will go through a safety talk and planting demonstration with you. Materials are to be returned within one week of your scheduled planting shift.

General Planting Quadrant Map

When booking a volunteer planting shift, select your preferred planting location by quadrant from the planting quadrant map. The specific planting location, within your preferred quadrant, will be confirmed by Root for Trees.
