I love volunteering with Tree Trust! They facilitate the tree plantings in the community they serve making cities more beautiful but also the whole planet a better place. The activities are fun and family friendly. It not unusual to see little kids carrying small buckets of water to water the tree they just helped planting. The staff is excited and passionate about planting. It's a win-win. They trees that they plant will be there for generations to enjoy

I have volunteered at many tree planting projects over the years with Tree Trust, but I believe the plantings where you work with school children may be my favorites. Every year Tree Trust works with selected schools to plant trees on school grounds. But the greatest thing is that the kids at the schools get to do the planting, with a little help from teachers, parents and other adult volunteers like myself. On planting day, kids at the schools are bursting with energy. Each classroom is assigned a tree or two to plant. You can just feel the enthusiasm as kids dig, water and mulch their tree. They take great pride and ownership of their tree, and younger kids often give their tree a name. I like to tell the kids to always remember their tree, and to come back and visit as they reach future milestones in their lives, such as high school graduation. Tree Trust makes it a great day with excellent planning, organization and cheerfulness on planting day.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

It's a very rewarding experience to see the enthusiasm of children as they plant their trees. In most groups of 20 to 30 students, there is always one or two students who come up to offer special thanks for being there on that day. That's when you know it was a day well spent.

I can't think of any changes I'd make to Tree Trust. I just wish more people could see the impact they have in the community.

My daughter and I recently were volunteers at a recent tree planting in the metro area. The staff at Tree Trust are curteous, professional and above all knowledgeable. We had a great time despite the weather and look forward to participating again in the future. It was extremely important that my daughter learned from professionals and understood why/how trees are such a vital piece of the ecological puzzle. I highly recommend this non-profit to anyone interested in participating in a tree planting and other volunteer work.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the ability to teach our youth through practical application and instruction.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

plant several more trees, expand into other states, and help offset the effects of the emerald ash borer that will surely destroy much of Minnesota's ash tree population.

Ways to make it better...

it wasn't so windy and cold the day we planted the trees.
