Volunteer with Trees for Cities

As a small team at Trees for Cities, volunteering is hugely important to us.  We have long seen Trees as a way of doing something positive for the environment, and it's encouraging to see that we’ve had more volunteers than ever come out to help us transform some of our bleakest neighbourhoods into green community hubs.

Planting and GreeningTrees for Cities has been planting at St George's Estate for years. This year we are working with the residents to create a community garden! We will provide hot drinks and food, live music and facepainting, alongside all the tools and guidance you need to plant the trees.

This event is now fully booked! If you signed up but can no longer make it, please let Jess know on jess@treesforcities.org or call 020 7820 4412 so the space can be opened up to another volunteer!

Our planting season runs from October to March, but there are opportunities for volunteers to help Trees for Cities at projects across London throughout the year. You will always be supported by Trees for Cities staff when volunteering at any of our projects.

 Volunteering with us is a fantastic way to:
  • learn more about trees
  • get practical hands on experience
  • improve your health and wellbeing
  • meet new people
  • have fun
