Community Tree Plantings & Volunteer Opportunities
Growing trees, growing communities — one planting at a time.
TreeFolks’ Community Tree Planting program coordinates with local community partners to provide volunteer opportunities to plant and care for trees on public lands that include City of Austin Parks, Travis County Parks, Austin Independent School District property, and more!
Our volunteers love the chance to plant and tend to trees on land that will benefit all of our neighbors! You might get a little dirty, but everyone goes home knowing that they worked hard to protect our environment!
Outside of the planting season, trees on public lands still need our tender loving care! Our Tree TLC volunteer events visit the trees in Austin and Travis County parks and give them some needed maintenance.
Our Tree TLC volunteer events aim to reconnect with areas we’ve already planted or worked in, and ensure the long-term health of the trees. These events can take a variety of forms — including mulching, pruning, watering, and more!
TreeFolks mission is to empower Central Texans to build stronger communities through planting and caring for trees.
How do Supervisors help? Supervisors are the folks that lead all volunteers during our tree planting events. TreeFolks relies on our Volunteer Planting Supervisors (Supers for short) to help us educate and lead our regular volunteers, many of whom are new to tree planting and volunteering! You will receive free training and support from us, and you will get to attend as many volunteer events as you want to, even if they are full. This could be a great opportunity for someone who loves trees and people!
- As a Supervisor, you are an ambassador for TreeFolks and its mission, as well as a teacher, leader, and planting assistant.
- You will be a part of a team, get your hands dirty, and have tons of fun too!
- Our Super trainings take place in January and September.
