Interested in learning about and supporting your local trees? We’re always on the lookout for residents and community partners.

We’ll train you on how to collect data on trees, on how to inspire your neighbors to request and plant trees, and help make Boston a more tree-healthy city.

There’s a lot to do!

  • Engage with our tree recipients
  • Care for street trees by watering, mulching, and cleaning tree pits
  • Have a special skill? Help with media, outreach, fundraising, event planning, or any other skill you have.

What’s it like to volunteer?

Our Fall 2018 Tree Inventory volunteers said:

“​For me, Speak for the Trees provides an experience that is unlike any in Boston. My knowledge of our trees in the urban environment has increased dramatically.  I now understand struggles of trees within my neighborhood. I am now committed to help however I can to increase canopy coverage in Boston.​”
