Root for Trees offers two different types of volunteer opportunities to plant.
Registered Tree Planting
Our Registered Tree Planting Program is two hours in length, and facilitated by Root for Trees Program Technicians who guide the planting demonstration, deliver a safety talk and provide interesting facts about Edmonton’s urban forest. Volunteers are provided with shovels, gloves and plant material and can choose morning, afternoon or evening programs, Tuesday to Saturday during the months of May-October.
Drop-In Tree Planting
Our Drop In Tree Planting Program offers flexibility with no registration required. Root for Trees staff are present on site to provide a safety talk and planting demonstration. Join as an individual, pair or small group. Opportunities are available on Thursdays or Saturdays during the months of May-October.
Root for Trees runs a series of special events throughout our planting season. These are usually open to all members of the public and available for volunteers to attend on a drop-in basis, however some may require pre-registration. More details can be found at Root for Trees Special Events.
