Event Description

Tree Blitzers aren't afraid to talk to new people and love planting trees. Tree Blitzers go door-to-door offering to plant trees on residential properties. Tree Blitzer training familiarizes our volunteers with various native tree species, how to properly plant a tree and how to canvass. We want you to feel comfortable talking to residents about the value of trees and how to care for trees, and this training will prepare you for that role.

Responsibilities:
Going door-to-door offering to plant trees on residential properties
Assisting homeowners choose the correct tree that is appropriate for their yard
Planting trees on the private property of homeowners
Keeping track of houses visited

Time Commitment:
Assist with two shifts per year (or more).

Training:
At this training you will be given an overview of Tree Blitzer duties, and ReForest London resources, as well as tips on engaging with neighbours and planning neighbourhood events. We discuss native tree species and how to properly select a tree for a yard as well.

Time Commitment: This training consists of one 1.5 hour classroom training session.

Our Expectations: If you become a Tree Bltizer, we expect you to assist at TWO events a year (but feel free to do more).

Experience: Experience with working with the public is an asset.

Skills:
Comfortable with talking to new people
Able to keep good track of data
