Here at TREE MUSKETEERS kids are boss and each of our plantings is youth-led. To accomplish this, we’ve developed a team of young people who are trained, according to ISA guidelines, to lead proper tree planting and care events. These young leaders work alongside other kids and adults to expand our local Urban Forest. In addition to leading tree plantings, Youth Planting Supervisors serve as representatives and leaders of TREE MUSKETEERS and the environmental movement at tree care events, fairs and other events.
If you are interested in joining the Youth Planting Supervisor Team, sign up below for an upcoming training. This four-hour training covers leading people young and old through a tree planting, ISA standards for tree planting and more about how young people are taking charge in the environmental movement.
