Tree Ambassadors build community and create investment in public green space.
The Tree Ambassador program empowers residents to become stewards of the urban forest and serve as resources for their local community. Tree Ambassadors are trained in the basics of urban forestry and community organizing. Tree Ambassadors work to develop neighborhood projects such as Tree Walks, invasive species removal workdays, street tree mulching and care events, and more.
We love new volunteers! We will be training a new cohort of Tree Ambassadors in the spring of 2014. If you are interested in becoming a Tree Ambassador, email us at email@example.com.

Tree Ambassador is a collaboration between the City of Seattle and Forterra. Program work is funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Forest Service’s Urban and Community Forestry program.
