Join or start a Treekeepers Chapter!
Dedicated TreeKeeper Groups Organized by Area
TreeKeepers Chapters often partner with their local municipality, park district, or similar entity, to focus the group’s stewardship activities on specific forestry goals. By partnering with local government organizations and Openlands, TreeKeeper Chapters can help address local tree stewardship needs, increase tree canopy, and educate and build community between volunteers, government officials, and residents.
How TreeKeepers Chapters Work
A TreeKeeper Chapter coordinates with Openlands, their partner government agency, and among themselves to plan their own workdays according to their own interests, abilities, and schedules. Some Chapters set up regularly scheduled planning meetings or pruning events TreeKeeper Chapters can also mulch and plant trees, conduct inventories, lead tree walks and educational & outreach efforts, and engage in local advocacy efforts.
