Volunteers of all ages are welcome at this event to help plant and water these young trees. No experience is needed, we will train you.
Can you and/or your organization serve as Water Brigade volunteers to help water the newly planted trees on planting day?
Volunteers are needed to help make sure each tree is deep watered with 15 gallons on planting day to help them get off to a good start.
Would your group like to provide refreshments for the volunteers?
- Ines with Ridgewood Heights Neighborhood Association, Lightning Camp Fire Group and Boy Scouts of America – Lone Scouts will bring volunteers and water and breakfast pastries for the volunteers!
- Jim and Donna with Ridgewood Triangle Neighborhood Association will bring volunteers and will grill hot dogs for the volunteers!
Can you and/or your organization assist with watering the trees during their first year?
Thank you for your pledge to water the new trees during their first year:

The Port of Long Beach and CAL FIRE have provided funding to plant 10,000 trees in Long Beach neighborhoods through 2022. Residents, businesses and community groups partner with Housing and Neighborhood Services Bureau to provide volunteers at the tree planting events.
Public Works will survey the neighborhood for tree planting locations and Housing and Neighborhood Services Bureau staff will mail letters to the property owners of all the adjacent sites to notify them that trees will be installed and to provide them with an opportunity to decline them.
Housing and Neighborhood Services Bureau staff will deliver all the trees and tools on planting day.
