Education and Volunteer Programs

As citizens of Boise, we all share a common interest in the welfare of the trees that grace our great city. The stewardship of this rich community resource is a privilege that we can all share in through a series of volunteer and education opportunities offered by Community Forestry.

Arbor Day

Each year Boise, the "City of Trees," celebrates Arbor Day by planting a tree at a Boise elementary school. Citizens of Boise can participate by helping with the planting. Learn more about the origins of Arbor Day.

Volunteer opportunities include events such as ReLeaf Boise, when hundreds of volunteers help plant over 100 trees along the streets of Boise, one-time service projects where you can plant, protect, or care for the city's trees, and ongoing efforts such as the Tree Steward program where volunteers can learn and care for trees on an ongoing basis.

Tree Walks

Boise Community Forestry provides a series of self-guided tree walks, for citizens to use to learn about the variety of trees in Boise's Parks. Brochures are available to guide you on these tree walks, with a map showing the approximate locations of each tree. Each tree walk contains basic tree descriptions, including the common and botanical names, the size of an average full-grown healthy tree and the ability for the species to adapt to different soil and site conditions.

We’re currently working to update self-guided tree walks for Ann Morrison Park, Julia Davis Park and Morris Hill Park. This page will be updated as new tree walk guides are completed.
