About:
Friends of Trees inspires people to improve the natural world around them through a simple solution: Planting Trees. Together.

Project Description:
During this project you will be part of a planting crew that plants ~10 large stock trees in the surrounding neighborhoods. At the end of the planting, our neighborhood volunteers will provide a potluck lunch for all volunteers back at Mt. Scott Learning Center - we hope you can stay for it!

Important Info:
Please arrive at Mt Scott Learning Center by 8:45am to enjoy some breakfast treats and hot coffee or chocolate. The planting starts promptly at 9:00am. Friends of Trees provides gloves, tools, and planting guidance, so all you need to do is show up dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy shoes or boots you don't mind getting a little dirty.

Project Requirements:

  • You must be 6 years of age or older to attend this project; any volunteer under age 16 must attend with a parent or adult chaperone.

    All volunteers under 18 are required to bring a Youth Volunteer Release Form signed by their parent or legal guardian. Please download, complete, and bring this waiver with you on the day of the project.

  • If you plan to bring children/additional volunteers you MUST reserve slots for them. The best way to do this is to create a Volunteer Team, then sign up your team for this project. Questions? Email teams@handsonportland.org 

  • The Volunteer Action Center is a bustling place and only unlockable lockers are available for purse/bag/coat storage during the project. Please leave your valuables at home.

  • Team Captains are only able to reserve up to 50% of the spots on any individual MLK Weekend of Service Project. Team Captains are required to provide names and email addresses for each team member (over the age of 13) in order to hold spaces on a volunteer project or they may be removed from the project. Questions? Email teams@handsonportland.org

    IMPORTANT NOTE: You are responsible for ensuring that everyone signed up through your team attends - only sign up team members who have confirmed their availability. Teams that repeatedly sign up, but do not show up or show up with fewer volunteers than they signed up, may be removed. To add or remove team members from a project, click on "My Account" and then "My Teams," above.
