Friends of Trees
Friends of Trees' mission is to bring people in the Portland, OR, Eugene-Springfield, OR and Vancouver, WA 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.
Through our Green Space Initiative, trained crew leaders guide volunteers at weekend events to restore green spaces.
Since Friends of Trees was founded by Richard Seidman in 1989, we have planted more than 450,000 trees and native plants. 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.
