Volunteer planting a tree

Root for Trees is the City of Edmonton's volunteer tree-planting initiative! You can take part in helping expand our urban forest when you volunteer with us.

Root for Trees is excited to return with volunteers to plant native trees, shrubs and wildflowers in Edmonton’s naturalized areas.

To register for the Group Planting Program visit Better Impact. For more information contact rootfortrees@edmonton.ca.

Root for Trees increases tree and shrub planting throughout the city with the help of corporations, local businesses, community groups, teams, families and individual residents. The Root for Trees program helps to expand Edmonton’s urban forest by planting trees for Edmontonians by Edmontonians.

Root for Trees plays a critical role in the landscape management process of naturalization. Over time, these grassy areas are planted with trees, shrubs and wildflowers and brought back to a more natural state, resulting in economic, environmental and quality of life benefits.
