Friends of Trees
March 23, 2011

First I ordered trees for my own house and helped plant them along with neighbors. Then I became a crew leader on plantings. Now I'm a neighborhood coordinator and it's been rewarding every step of the way. Friends of Trees (FOT) builds community is many ways, not only in improving the canopy of trees along our streets, but connecting neighbors and volunteers with their own places of living.
You can't plant a tree and not think about them a little differently afterwards. The hands on aspect is key.
FOT's mission is growing, and keeping up with that is the biggest challenge of all.

The Great!

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

Seeing new and mature trees in my city.

Ways to make it better...

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

Have one in every town and city.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I served as neighborhood coordinator for annual tree planting.
