The 2017 Root Ball will celebrate Trees Atlanta’s growth on the Westside including the current installation of the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum on the Westside Beltline Trail, expanded education programs focused on Westside schools, and restoration work in greenspaces located in the Westview and West End neighborhoods.
We invite you to be a part of this special celebration. The event will feature dinner, cocktails, music and a huge silent auction. Community tree champions will also be recognized for the work they do to support tree canopy in our city. All proceeds will benefit Trees Atlanta’s innovative and trusted education, planting, and conservation programs.

Help care for our plants at projects around town. Activities include mulching urban trees in the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, watering new trees, removing invasive plants, maintaining the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum, planting new trees, and other outdoor maintenance tasks.
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:
- 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
- 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
