Tree For All engages communities large and small in watershed restoration projects throughout the Tualatin River Basin.
It's a community partnership of cities, nonprofits, farmers, volunteers and others who have joined hands (and shovels) to plant native trees and shrubs along the Tualatin River and its tributaries. Streams lined with native vegetation provide cleaner, cooler water, better flood management, and fish and wildlife habitat. It’s good for Mother Nature and for the community!
A decade ago, the Tree For All challenge had a lofty goal of planting 1 million trees in 20 years. We have come a long way in 10 years, and in 2015 were able to plant 2 million in a single year. To date, more than 5.7 million native plants have been installed in the Tualatin watershed. Read more about this accomplishment, and the work ahead, in an October 2015 Outside Voice blog post.
Tree For all is for everyone, and everyone can get involved. Here's how to become a partner. You can also volunteer at numerous tree-planting events throughout the year.
Tree for All provides unique, customized opportunities for businesses, schools, nonprofit groups, families and farmers to participate in community-building.
How Tree for All Can Work for You
We are looking for partners of all sizes and shapes to join in the planting and help us spread the word about the value of native plants to the health of the Tualatin River Watershed.
- Employers can undertake planting efforts scaled to the size and availability of their workforce
- Schools can engage students and their parents in planting
- Nonprofits can motivate volunteers and gain publicity
- Retailers can mount cause marketing campaigns
