Volunteer to Plant Trees
November 7, 2019 to November 23, 2019
Help plant trees along streets and trails and in parks and restoration areas throughout Western Pennsylvania. Every spring and fall, we need help from volunteers to plant hundreds of trees around the region. When you plant trees, you are helping create a green and healthy region. You’ll also learn about different types of native trees and tree care.
