Friends of Trees' mission is to bring people in the Portland-Vancouver and Eugene-Springfield metro areas together to plant and care for city trees and green spaces.
Through our neighborhood trees program, homeowners buy discounted trees to plant with their neighbors at weekend plantings. During the first year of our three-year plant it Portland campaign, we planted more than 4,000 street and yard trees in Portland and more than 500 street and yard trees in Vancouver, WA, and Beaverton, OR.
Through our green space initiative, trained crew leaders guide volunteers at weekend events to restore public natural areas and green spaces between freeways and neighborhoods.
Since Friends of Trees was founded by Richard Seidman in 1989, we have planted more than 430,000 trees and native plants. This year we established a new office in Eugene, OR.
Friends of Trees is a member of the Coalition for a Livable Future, Alliance for Community Trees, Oregon Community Trees, and EarthShare Oregon. We meet all 20 BBB Charity Standards.
How many ways can you show your love by giving the gift of a tree. There are countless ways. Good things can grow on trees.
