Caring For Street Trees

Our volunteer tree stewards help us keep our street trees healthy and strong for generations to come. Learn some basic and advanced tree care activities that you can do to help our urban forest.

It’s easy to become a tree steward! We host volunteers all year long. We can train you in basic activities such as watering trees, adding mulch and soil, and removing weeds and litter; as well as advanced activities such as installing a tree guard, expanding tree beds, and installing or removing stone or brick pavers.
