We highly recommend that volunteers wear long pants and long sleeves. All volunteers need closed-toed shoes or boots, clothes that can get dirty, sunscreen and bug spray as needed, snacks as needed (though a meal or snack before the project is recommended), and drinking water in reusable containers. No one-time-use plastic bottles, please.
You may choose from from the following shifts:

Arboretum – (n) ar.bo.re.tum- a botanical garden focused on woody plants, which are grown for research, education and display.
Come walk the Atlanta BeltLine with an expertly trained Trees Atlanta docent! During the approximately 1 mile tour, attendees will learn about the Atlanta BeltLine including design and history, the horticultural collections of the Arboretum, and experience first-hand the positive changes the project is having on Atlanta’s communities.
A walking tour is the best way to see the progress and be active at the same time! Learn more about the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum and the walking tour here. Have your cell phone handy so that you can interact with the If Trees Could Sing installations and hear some of your favorite musicians talk about their favorite trees.
The Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum has been awarded a Level II Accreditation by The ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation Program and The Morton Arboretum, for achieving particular standards of professional practices deemed important for arboreta and botanic gardens.
Sylvan Hills was established in the 1920’s, with homes built by prominent developers known for their quality craftsmanship. Situated within the Atlanta city limits, and in close proximity to trolley lines, this neighborhood was favored for its rolling woodlands of tulip poplar, oak, and hickory. Join Trees Atlanta for a walking tour of the Sylvan Hills Neighborhood Arboretum in conjunction with the Atlanta Preservation Center’s Phoenix Flies 2017, a celebration of Atlanta’s historic sites. Many thanks to the City of Atlanta for supporting our tree walks!
