Volunteer - TreesLouisville

Volunteer Opportunities

TreesLouisville is excited to provide a number of volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Our organization’s main focus is to increase Louisville’s canopy coverage by getting trees in the ground! As a volunteer, you will have the ability to learn how to plant and prune trees, and gain knowledge to be able to educate others about trees and their importance to urban environments. Please read below and sign up for the opportunity that is most appropriate for you.

Questions? Contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@treeslouisville.org.

Canopy Corps Volunteers

Becoming a Canopy Corps Volunteer is a wonderful opportunity to help increase Louisville’s urban tree canopy! As a member, you will assist TreesLouisville in planting, pruning, watering, and mulching projects across the city. TreesLouisville will provide you with proper training from an ISA-Certified Arborist on the best practices to plant and care for trees. If you are looking to be a part of a committed volunteer experience, willing to get your hands dirty, and share your knowledge of tree care with other community members, then this is the opportunity for you! In order to become a Canopy Corps Volunteer, you must attend a training session as well as be able to work outdoors lifting, bending and digging.

Special Events & Educational Volunteers

As a Special Events & Educational Volunteer, you will be the voice of TreesLouisville to the public! This volunteer opportunity allows you to engage with our community through outreach booths at festivals, farmers markets, and other events, as well as provide educational information about the importance of Louisville’s urban tree canopy. Special Events Volunteers may also assist TreesLouisville in larger events like tree giveaways and landscaping projects. This opportunity does not require training before you are able to volunteer.

Please complete our Volunteer Interest Form and we will contact you about upcoming events and opportunities.
