Tree Planting Volunteer RSVP
TreeFolks is a non-profit organization that plants native 5-15 gallon trees to beautify, provide shade and wildlife habitat, to reduce water runoff, and improve the quality of life in Austin neighborhoods. You will learn the importance of urban forest stewardship and how tree planting helps Austin’s environment and its citizens thrive. TreeFolks partners with Travis County Parks to plant native trees in our public parks. Planting native trees will enable us to restore tree and shrub diversity during drought as well as retain water and improve water quality in Austin’s waterways.
Families are encouraged to sign up. However, TreeFolks asks that children under the age of 17 be accompanied by adults. For smaller children, please make sure there is a one adult per two child ratio in your group. Because of the dangers with tools, planting holes and other hazards in nature, we kindly ask that you monitor your children at all times during planting events.
Wear long pants and closed toe shoes, as we will work with shovels and rakes. Bring a water bottle, hat, sunscreen, and dress appropriately for the weather. Water, coffee, light refreshments, gloves, and tools are provided.
After you complete the volunteer form below, your contact information will be shared with TreeFolks who will email with more details after the volunteer enrollment has completed.
We have partnered with Tree Folks on this volunteer tree planting in celebration of the upcoming production of The Man Who Planted Trees, coming to Stateside at the Paramount October 28-30. We look forward to sharing more information about the show while we plant trees!
