Building Strong Neighborhood Canopies
Neighborhood Tree Captains are local volunteer leaders working to recruit their neighbors to receive trees, free of cost, to plant in their yards. Captains serve as a valuable tool to their community by providing resources to aid with planting and caring for new trees.
Tree Captain Role
Neighborhood Tree Captains will be awarded 50 trees to distribute throughout their neighborhood. A Captain’s job is to spread the word about the opportunity to receive high-quality trees, free of cost. The Trees Forever ReLeaf team will work with Captains on logistics, advertising and planting day support. You don’t need to be a tree expert to be a Neighborhood Tree Captain! We are looking for applicants who are enthusiastic about environmental stewardship and willing to reach out to their neighbors.
Ready to roll up your sleeves and restore your neighborhood’s canopy? Applications will open March 1, 2023 and must be completed before May 1, 2023. A Trees Forever ReLeaf team member will reach out to you within a few weeks after you’ve submitted your application. Please note, due to limited funding, we can only take on so many neighborhoods each year.
