Review from Guidestar
September 24, 2013

TreePeople has helped me plan and carry out three tree planting projects at my son's school. The best part has been that the students were able to help plant the trees themselves. TreePeople was so great at explaining to them why planting trees is important, and how to do it correctly. They even had shovels small enough for the kindergarten students to use! The playground use to be sweltering hot and completely unshaded - now it's green, shady, and so, so beautiful.

Tree People does a wonderful job with education. Their primary focus at this time is in education about watershed functions. To do this, they have a large plastic suitcase that shows how trees absorb water or contribute to groundwater supplies. It is interesting, but gets a lot of puzzled looks because most people approaching the booth want to learn about trees. Perhaps coupled with a display/infographic that gives some great talking points/numbers/information about Tree People displayed for passers-by, the entire outreach would be more successful. (as a side-note, since there is so much explaining to do, volunteers spend a lot of time talking and interacting, but quickly lose the interest of passers-by).

We went on a treepeople tree care outreach, and it was a lot of fun and a lot of great information. In one morning, with hands-on work, all of us learned more about caring for trees (such as how to add mulch, prune, and what to look for in healthy trees) than I had ever thought to know! I was even able to use some of this knowledge on my own plants and trees at home.

Great fun, and a real-world way to help out in Los Angeles.

Their website has events for city blocks, as well as plantings in parks and even in the mountains. I already signed up for a tree planting in the Angeles forest!

The Great!

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

Seeing the trees they plant grow and thrive, with a little bit of easy care.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get more people involved and informed for plantings in Los Angeles! Maybe they could have signs that say "this tree planted by tree people" so everyone can learn about them. Also, I think people who were watching us do tree care might have joined in to help. Maybe there is some way to let people know that would be possible too, like a sign near the trees with information about what we are doing.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Have more information on hand about the company. Also, more information about how I might be able to plant trees on my block too.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I learned great things about tree care that I can apply to my own garden and home area!

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

It felt great!
