Every spring and fall, hundreds of volunteers join forces with the NJ Tree Foundation and our community partners to dig holes, plant trees, lay mulch, and have fun at tree planting events. Sign-up for our e-newsletter to be the first to know when we’re planting trees!
All volunteer tree planting events are held rain or shine. Volunteers are asked to arrive no later than 9am, though you can come as early as 8:15 am to help set up for the event. Plantings are typically finished by noon. Please dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, and wear clothes you can get dirty. Tools, gloves, water, and planting instructions are provided by the NJ Tree Foundation staff.
Volunteers should sign up in advance.
Additional Volunteer Opportunities:
- Take pictures and/or video at our tree planting events.
- Summer volunteer opportunities vary, as it is often too hot to plant trees. Please contact Lisa, Elena, or Meredith with summer volunteer inquiries.
