Tree Care at Friendship Rec Center

July 26, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT


Please join us as we weed and water the 100 trees we planted over the past 2 years!


  • Registration: You will be prompted to accept the Volunteer Waiver while you register for this event.
  • Youth Volunteers: Volunteers under 18 years of age must have their parent or legal guardian sign their consent form and be supervised by an adult at all times. If you do not have access to a printer, we will have some waivers on hand.
  • No specific skills required. Each event starts with a tool safety and planting demonstration. Volunteers plant alongside experienced Citizen Foresters and staff.
    Arrive on time. Check-in opens a half hour prior to the indicated start time.
  • Dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather. Closed-toe shoes and long pants are required. Boots are preferred over sneakers.
  • Animals: No animals are allowed into the event, except for service animals.


Volunteers are welcomed in the morning with granola bars for breakfast. Drinking water is available throughout the event. Bring your own refillable bottle or cup if you would like to reduce the number of single-use cups Casey Trees will provide.
