What I love about this group, in addition to its admirable mission and friendly staff, is the focus and organization of its events. Volunteers who show up for neighborhood tree plantings are efficiently assigned to small groups which spread out and systematically plant trees--If you like a sense of accomplishment and teamwork and don't mind dirt--join this crowd. (You also usually get snacks)

I am currently volunteering at Friends of Trees. Nothing makes me feel better than tree-planting! It's so much fun, and the people who both work and volunteer there are really nice, down-to-earth and happy people. I'm really enjoying my experience there!

I love Friends of Trees!!!
