Root for Trees Program - City of Edmonton
The 2019 Root for Trees season is officially open for bookings - and our guided tree planting events are filling quickly! June, July and August are fully booked for guided events, but there are still many openings available in September and the first part of October - and we have self-guided event spaces available throughout our planting season. We also have many exciting special events in store. Whether you are a returning volunteer, or have never planted with us before, we hope to see you at one of our planting events this year! Remember, all events must be booked at least 4 weeks in advance in order to allow us the time to prepare for your event.
To learn more about our programs, or to sign up for a planting event, please select the Volunteer Opportunities tab at the top of the page. If you require assistance, or have specific questions about our events, please email us at [email protected].
Root for Trees is an enhanced tree planting program run by the City of Edmonton, and works to preserve and expand our urban forest through partnerships with community groups, corporations, and individual residents. Edmontonians are invited to sign up and participate in one of our tree planting events, where we’ll provide all the materials required for an exciting day in nature! With an annual planting target of 45,000 native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers, Root for Trees aims to achieve the overall goal of doubling the size of Edmonton's urban forest!

This program has been designed to be a win-win opportunity for both Sponsors as well as Organizations.
As a Sponsor, you will be able to explore the various organizations that are part of VolunteerMark, connect with them and support a worthy cause. Your sponsorship will enable the organizations to use one of the most premium features of our volunteer management tool, which would immensely help them make a difference in their communities. This will also help your brand gain significant visibility and increase your business relations.
