Tree Teams are groups of dedicated volunteers who care about and for their neighborhood's trees.
What is a Neighborhood Tree Team?
Tree Teams work with Urban Forestry to plan tree events in neighborhoods, such as educational workshops, tree walks, or tree stewardship activities such as pruning or planting. Tree Teams also represent and advocate for trees at neighborhood association meetings and serve as a connection between Urban Forestry and neighbors.
