Advocate for Trees

Communicate with developers, legislatures and other decision makers to keep our urban forest healthy

Become a Certified Tree Advocate

Interested in becoming a voice for trees and influencing local policies and development projects? Join us for our workshop, Advocacy in the District. This workshop is the first step toward becoming a Certified Tree Advocate with Casey Trees. After Stand Up for Trees, you’ll be encouraged to watch a webinar that dives deeper into the ways you can affect change in your D.C. community. Then take just three advocacy actions — which can be anything from attending a community meeting or hearing to submitting public comments on a project — and you’ll become Casey Trees’ next Certified Tree Advocate! As a Certified Tree Advocate, you’ll continue your advocacy with Casey Trees by receiving exclusive invitations to advocacy classes and events, and gain access to tools and resources to help you ensure that D.C. continues to be the City of Trees.

Citizen Advocate Handbook

Designed to empower District residents to stand up, speak out, and fight for D.C.’s trees — the Citizen Advocate Handbook is a comprehensive resource that provides residents with everything they will need to advocate for trees in our great city.
