Tree Specialist 101 Volunteer Training
Completion of Reforest London Orientation is a prerequisite to this training.
Tree specialists are a specialized volunteer role with ReForest London. They are the go-to people for tree planting and tree giveaway events. They also help at plantings, aftercare events and tree depots.
Tree Specialists provide their knowledge of tree planting to help less experienced volunteers. These specialists familiarize volunteers with native tree species and the importance of proper tree planting techniques.
A Light meal will also be provided as a part of this training.

After the training, we will send you an online quiz to complete. This course is the First step in becoming a Tree Specialist and certifies you as a ReForest London Planting Leader. To become certified as a Tree Specialist you will also need to complete Tree Specialist 201.
Our Expectations: If you become a Planting Leader, we expect you to assist at FOUR shifts a year (but feel free to do more)
You will receive an I Dig Trees t-shirt after your first event as a certified Planting Leader!
