Tree Ambassador

Join the Tree Ambassadors

Do you dream of living in a tree house? Do you eagerly await the first leaf buds in the spring? Do you love to lie on your back and watch branches dancing in the breeze? Does a stroll down a tree-lined street put a smile on your face? You may be a tree lover!

Tree Ambassadors nurture Seattle’s trees. Join your fellow tree
lovers to grow Seattle’s urban forest.


Tree Ambassadors

Tree Ambassadors build community and create investment in public green space.

Being a Tree Ambassador means:

  • Making a positive difference to Seattle’s urban forest by leading projects in an area of your interest
  • Meeting new friends and becoming a valued part of Seattle’s urban forestry network
  • Opportunities for free workshops on subjects like pruning, planting, and tree identification
  • Participating in fun events like learning to climb trees with professional rigging

No previous tree experience necessary - just a love of trees!

Together we can make sure everyone in Seattle has a tree to hug.

How Can I Get Involved?

Trainings for new Tree Ambassadors take place in the spring and will next occur in 2015. But that doesn't mean you can't join us! Visit our calendar to find all upcoming public events that you can join us at.
