About

Friends of Trees brings people together to plant city trees and restore urban natural areas in the Portland-Vancouver metro area.

Using a community based model, our Neighborhood Trees program trains key volunteers to coordinate planting events in their neighborhoods and other key volunteers to lead crews of volunteer planters, enabling neighbors to plant and care for street and yard trees in their neighborhoods.

Our Green Space Initiative program guides volunteers at weekend projects to restore public green spaces and transportation corridors throughout the Portland-Vancouver metro area.

You can leave a legacy by donating in honor or memory of a loved on through our Gift Trees program.

Our Volunteer program recruits, trains and maintains thousands of volunteers to assist in Friends of Trees' operations and to plant trees and shrubs through our planting programs.

Education & Outreach provides public education about the planting, care for, and benefits of city trees.

1. Portland-area street and park trees remove nearly 2 million pounds of pollutants and nearly 53 million pounds of carbon each year.

2. Since 1989, Friends of Trees has planted nearly 400,000 trees and shrubs in the Portland-Vancouver area.
