Neighborhood Tree Care Coordinator

VOLUNTEER Neighborhood Tree Care Coordinator 

Do you appreciate beautiful trees? Are you interested in improving your local environment? Do you like getting to know and interact with your neighbors? Do you have a few hours each month to volunteer for your community? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions we encourage you to find out more about becoming your neighborhood tree care coordinator.


Tree San Diego is a nonprofit organization focused on improving the quantity and quality of the urban forest in San Diego County.  Recently we planted 250 trees on streets in western Chula Vista.  These trees need to be watered on a weekly or bi-weekly basis (depending on the season and rainfall) as well as periodically weeded.  Volunteers will play a major role in doing this.   We are looking for a few community-minded volunteers to help organize and coordinate with their neighbors to take care of the trees on their blocks.  This should require no more than 4 to 8 hours per month.  We need help with the following streets:

600 and 700 blocks of Colorado Avenue; 600 and 700 blocks of Woodlawn Avenue; 100 and 600 blocks of Oaklawn Avenue; 600 block of Jefferson Avenue


  • Recruit and organize your neighbors to help care for the trees on your street.
  • Explain the tree care procedures to other volunteers, including best practices for watering and weeding.
  • Coordinate the weekly/biweekly watering and periodic weeding.
  • Organize occasional volunteer celebrations


If you think you might be interested in volunteering for this responsibility for your block or street, please call and leave a message or send us an email.  We will be happy to answer any questions you have and help you determine if you want to volunteer for this important neighborhood improvement effort.
