Are you interested in planting a street or yard tree at your house? Or are you interested in helping with restoring natural areas in Salem? We’re Friends of Trees and,with your help, we’ll be turning Salem a little bit greener. Help us plant beautiful trees that will provide numerous benefits such as stormwater absorption, increased property values, clean air and water, beauty and a sense of peacefulness to your neck of the woods.

Our Neighborhood Trees program will be hosting a neighborhood planting event the morning of Saturday, November 7th. We’ll be helping residents of Lansing, NESCA, Highland and NEN neighborhoods plant trees at their homes. If you’re interested in having a tree planted at your house sign up at or call us at 503-467-2516. The sign up deadline is October 5th.
We’ll also be hosting several Green Space planting events around town to restore stream sides and other natural areas, usually in parks. To view our planting calendar go to
