We can all play a role in stewarding our urban trees and community forests.  There are many ways to voluntarily steward Vermont's trees. To get involved, join your local Conservation Commission or Tree Board, participate in Arbor Day or another community tree planting event, weed tree beds, table at local events, or share proper tree care practices.  Whether you have an hour, a day, or are looking for a long-term volunteer commitment, we hope that we can connect you to the people and resources you need!
