Volunteer

Plant trees at a Neighborhood Planting Event:

Throughout the year we have a variety of Tree Planting Events. Check out our events to see what we are up to. We work in teams and plant trees using group energy and high spirits. It only takes about three hours on a Saturday morning, then we reconvene for a free yummy snack lunch. Here's what you need to know

Contact us and state what dates you'd like to volunteer. We'll send you a message with the detailed information about how to prepare and where to meet up.

You will be assigned to a team of volunteers on the day of your commitment. Tree planting is completed by noon and we finish up with a free yummy snack lunch party.

You will be trained and supervised by a trained planting supervisor. Tools and materials will be provided by Ojai Trees.

The work is easy and fun because "many hands make the work light". There will be strong people on each team to do lifting and tough digging. All trees are 15 gallon size.

Care for trees at a Tree Care Event:

Tree care events are scheduled throughout the year. This is light work: pruning, checking ties and supports, watering. It's a good opportunity to learn the basics of young tree care. Contact us if you’d like to volunteer.

Become a Neighborhood Forester:

A Neighborhood Forester is someone who is interested in having more trees grow in their neighborhood. Is that you? Supported by Ojai Trees, they reach out to their neighbors, help select the right tree for the right spot, and help to arrange a tree purchase. Then an Ojai Trees volunteer team plants the trees at low cost using group energy and high spirits. Being a Neighborhood Forester is an easy task that doesn't take much time, and is a great way to build relationships and make a positive contribution to healing the world right where you live. If you are interested, contact us and we'll invite you to the next Neighborhood Forester training.

Become a Tree Planting Supervisor

A Tree Planting Supervisor completes a training course to learn how to lead a group of volunteers in planting a tree correctly. It's easy and it's fun! No experience required.
