Trees Matter Shade Tree Events

Shade Tree Event at Perry High School (Gilbert) on 10.5.19!

Trees Matter will be facilitating the SRP Shade Tree Workshop & Distribution Event at Perry High School on Saturday, October 5, 2019. Learn more about this energy efficiency program at: .

These events are volunteer-powered! And we would love YOUR help!

There are many volunteer roles that help make the day a great success. You can read about each of the roles in the sign-up below, and sign-up directly for whichever sounds like the best fit for you.

Volunteers will be helping to greet & direct the participants, and register participants for 2 tree-care workshops (beginning at 8am and 10am). After the workshop on tree care, the SRP participants proceed to the “tree corral” and pick up 2 free trees to take home with them. At the Tree Corral, volunteers help with set-up, filling tree orders, and verifying the correct tree orders. We also ask for several Master Gardeners or Arborists to answer participants’ questions about which tree is the best fit for them.

We will have lots of breakfast snacks and refreshments throughout the morning! 

The event will take place at:

Perry High School
1919 E Queen Creek Rd
Gilbert, AZ 85297

An email of additional details will be sent to you via email the week before the event.

Note: All volunteers under age 18 will need to have a waiver signed by their parent or guardian. We will have blank copies of the waiver on site, or you can download the youth waiver here and bring it with you.

We have volunteers from One Tree Planted helping us at this event! One Tree Planted is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization focused on planting trees around the world yb wokring with other individuals ad organizations to make it easier to plant trees themselves. Not only are they volunteering with us, but they are also donating $1,000 for our SRP Shade Tree Program!
