Volunteer for Forest Aid

No matter your age, everyone is welcome to come to a tree planting. If you don’t feel up to climbing a mountainside, you can be useful greeting volunteers and helping them register for the tree planting.

Individual volunteers and families are always welcome and we also encourage small and large groups. If you belong to a group – a school, club, business, faith-based organization, Scouts, etc. – start talking to them now about organizing a workday so you can get it on your group’s calendar and reserve your planting day. We’ll have more information about group registration as soon as it becomes available.

Plantings will take place Thursdays through Sundays with weekends being the largest and most popular events. The weekday plantings will mostly be filled with volunteers from schools, businesses and other special groups. If you have a group or are interested in weekday plantings, email volunteer@treepeople.org.

We'll be planting in family-friendly areas with less likelihood for slope instability. These areas play an important role of the overall Station Fire recovery effort. Planting trees creates a sense of stewardship among volunteers from around the Los Angeles region. Volunteers will leave each day with a greater understanding of what it takes to establish and maintain a healthy forest. Participation in the recovery effort reinforces the public's role as advocates for the forest.

We need volunteer leaders!

Angeles Restoration Supervisor trainings are free, one-day, hands-on trainings offered on Saturdays and Sundays. We’ll have at least two trainings before the planting season begins in mid-February, and then offer another training during the planting season if needed.
