Volunteer Opportunities

Tree Planters

Engage in the powerful act of planting a young tree and help someone who cannot plant for him or herself. You can lend a helping hand and provide a valuable natural resource that will improve quality of life and the environment.

On Saturday, April 19, hundreds of Denver residents will pick up and plant street trees they've requested through our Denver Digs Trees Street Tree Program, which provides free and low-cost trees. You can join a crew of our cherished Digger volunteers who adopt a set of addresses and pick up, deliver, and plant trees for neighbors and those unable to plant their trees due to physical limitations.
