Rooted in community. Branching out to others.
Casey Trees and our volunteers believe in the value of trees. We invest time and effort to create what we envision for the future — a healthy tree canopy in the nation’s capital.
Volunteers provide muscle, skills, knowledge, and enthusiasm for tree plantings; advocacy for the urban tree canopy; and education to fellow citizens about the benefits of trees.
For people of all ages and abilities, we offer practical skills and knowledge, fun opportunities, and a chance to actively improve communities as we create a lasting legacy.
Once in the ground, our young trees need extra care to survive. While the communities where we plant develop comprehensive maintenance plans, plantings of 20 or more trees sometimes need a little extra help, especially in the hot summer months. This is where you come in!
Thirsty Thursdays and Saturday Soaks
Join us every third Thursday and second Saturday of the month during the summer for two hours to weed, mulch and water trees planted in the last three seasons. Casey Trees will provide all tools, including gloves, water and a light snack.
Looking for an opportunity for your group of five or more? We do our best to accommodate groups of up to 20 volunteers at our tree plantings and up to 30 at our tree care events. Should we be unable to accommodate your request, we will be happy to refer you to one of our wonderful partner organizations. If you represent a large group, please fill out our group volunteer request form and our Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch shortly.
