It's Bigger Than All Of Us

The Nature Conservancy and Friends of Trees are working together to plant more trees in the PNW.

Help Us Plant Trees and Protect Nature

Besides cleaning our air and water, trees keep us cool, fight climate change and make our communities stronger, smarter, happier and healthier. That’s why The Nature Conservancy and Friends of Trees have partnered up to plant trees in and around the Portland metro area. Through the strength of partnership and collective action, we have the power to make positive change. Now all we need is you!

Friends of Trees has planted 800,000 trees since 1989. We need your help to get to one million!

By volunteering to plant a tree and using your vote to create parks and protect nature, you can play an important role in greening our city, strengthening community and fighting climate change. Everyone's individual actions will add up to make a big impact.

Trees Mean the World to Us

There are as many benefits of trees as there are kinds. Here are just a few to keep in mind the next time you see one—or trip over a root!

Protecting the Forests of the Pacific Northwest

We’re tree people—in case you haven’t noticed. For decades, we’ve been fighting to protect our trees and increase their numbers with the help of people just like you. Please take a moment to explore where we’ve been and what we’re doing.

Stronger Together


To improve the health of our city and planet, we need all hands on deck. That’s why The Nature Conservancy and Friends of Trees have joined forces. We’re proud of our partnership, the trees we’re planting and the people and communities we’re uniting.
