Get Involved

TreePeople Needs You.

TreePeople is a ground-up movement that builds a more sustainable future for everyone. We unite communities to increase tree canopy in our urban forest, restore and protect our local mountains, and educate and inspire others to do the same.

Join Our Movement


Volunteering with TreePeople is fun and rewarding. Our events empower you with the support, training and tools you need to be an engine of change. Join us each week as we plant and care for trees, remove invasive species, and maintain our projects throughout Southern California.

Become a Community Forester

Our Community Foresters help spearhead groups of volunteers to ensure trees are planted and cared for correctly and safely. Join the team and gain key leadership skills and technical knowledge.

TreePeople’s mission depends on generous contributions from our community. There are various ways you can help achieve our goals, including dedicating a tree.

Adopt a Tree

Receive free shade trees to plant in your yard and parkway. If you own property in the City of LA, you are eligible to receive free trees from City Plants. Please select TreePeople in the “How did you hear about us?” section. If you don’t live in the City of LA and want more parkway trees LA County Public Works can support you getting those as well! And of course, we are here to support you every step of the way! TreePeople also provides the opportunity to dedicate a tree in someone’s honor.

Teams for Trees

Our private corporate engagement events connect your team to the great outdoors working to plant and care for urban trees, restore local mountain watersheds, beautify TreePeople’s Coldwater Canyon Park and more, while lifting spirits and improving teamwork!
