Let's plant trees together in Westside Vancouver! Interested in receiving a tree? Click HERE to purchase a tree for your household. Dozens of large (6-10' tall) trees will be ready for planting in their new homes across these neighborhoods, and your help is what makes this community planting possible!  We'll be planting in the following neighborhoods: Arnada, Carter Park, Edgewood Park, Fourth Plain, Fourth Plain Village, Fruit Valley, Hough, Hudson's Bay, Lincoln, Northwest, Rose Village, and Shumway.

Please arrive by 8:45am to sign-in and enjoy some lunch snacks and coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. The planting starts at 9:00am. We provide gloves, tools, and guidance. We ask that all volunteers dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes/boots you don't mind getting dirty, and be ready to have fun! Neighborhood volunteers provide a potluck lunch for all volunteers after the planting is complete, it's a small way we can say "thank you" for your hard work.

How do I register? Click here and fill out the quick registration form. Individuals and groups welcome! Please know that groups larger than 4-5 people will be split onto multiple planting crews at this event.

Have a pickup truck? We need your help getting these young trees to their planting sites a few blocks away from the central staging site. Please sign up at www.friendsoftr​ees.org/truck if you're able to help us out in this key role. 

This event will have a bike crew! Want to join the team planting trees by bike? Sign up at www.friendsoftrees.org/bike. Bikers with trailers and cargo bikes are awesome but anyone with a bike is welcome to take part! 

Under age 18? A signed youth waiver is required for you to volunteer: www.friendsoftr​ees.org/youthwa​iver We kindly request youth 15 years and younger are accompanied by an adult.
