Green Heart Louisville Tree Planting
Louisville Grows needs YOU to join our tree planting team! Help us dig toward our goal of planting 2,000 trees this fall season. No experience is necessary, everyone is welcome to come play in the dirt with us. Our Citizen Foresters will be there to lead you in becoming a proper tree planter!

Citizen Foresters and all interested volunteers are welcome! Any person 12 years of age or younger must be accompanied at a 1:1 ratio by a parent or guardian.
* All volunteers must be fully vaccinated.
* Wearing a mask is mandatory.
* Registration will take place in a central outdoor location.
– 6′ social distancing will be practiced while not planting trees.
– Groups will be capped at 8 participants.
– No indoor activities.
* Breakfast and lunch will NOT be served.
In response to the rise in COVID-19 infection rates due to the Delta Variant, all volunteers must present proof of full vaccination OR a negative PCR test within 72 hours preceding the event. (We suggest taking a photo of your vaccination card with your phone to present during registration.) Masks will be required while planting trees due to the close proximity to other team members during the task. We encourage you to bring your own gloves, hand sanitizer, and filled water bottles. If you do not feel well prior to the planting or on the day of the planting, please do not attend.
Dress appropriately for the weather. You’ll be digging in dirt and handling mulch, so wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. CLOSED-TOE SHOES AND LONG SLEEVE SHIRTS ARE RECOMMENDED. Waterproof outerwear is recommended if rain is forecasted. We will plant trees come rain or shine. If severe weather is expected, you will be notified about an alternate event date.
This planting is in partnership with Green Heart Louisville. The project is the first controlled experiment to test if increasing green space and infrastructure in a neighborhood improves air quality and human health with the goal of developing a “greenprint” for creating healthier neighborhoods.
