About the Tree Trust

The Tree Trust is a program led by the PLAY Boulder Foundation to work with citizens to support trees in Boulder and promote a healthy urban canopy for years to come.

Tree Trust’s goal is to provide citizens with resources to care for their trees, tools to recognize and prevent developing diseases in the area, and the aid to retain a sustainable urban canopy.


Become a Tree Tender

The Tree Tender program educates and empowers citizens to take care of their local trees.

By becoming a tree tender, you will:

  • Learn basic tree planting maintenance

  • Connect with community members in need of assistance caring for and planting trees

  • Facilitate tree distributions

  • Lead volunteers in planting projects

  • Share education materials and Tree Trust initiatives with the community

Our latest Tree Tender Training was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who participated, and congrats to our new Tree Tenders!

PLAY will host another Tree Tender Training in Spring 2020.
