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

Bookings for our Registered Group Planting Program opened to the public on March 31, 2023. Please register through Better Impact. For more information contact

Facilitated by two of our program staff, registered group plantings are hands-on educational opportunities that are fun and inclusive. This group volunteer opportunity is perfect for team building, families, students, clubs and community groups.

Root for Trees provides:

  • Program staff who guide a planting demonstration, safety talk, and share interesting facts about Edmonton's urban forest
  • Native trees and shrubs
  • Shovels and gloves
