Friends of Trees will also have a representative on hand each day to be able to speak and answer questions about the organization.

Founded in 1989, Friends of Trees is committed to inspiring people to improve the natural world by planting trees together. Today, the organization is a nationally recognized, regional leader in improving the urban tree canopy and restoring sensitive natural areas—through programs delivered by thousands of volunteers.
