Tree Planting By Bike

Tree Planting by Bike3It’s bike planting season again with Friends of Trees! In partnership with REI and many volunteers they are building their plant-by-bike program and they could use your human powered skills! Over the past few years the program has had several of these ‘bike crew’ plantings and they are a very fun way to show the power of bikes AND get more trees planted in Eugene; creating a more livable and greener city.

There are two tree plantings left this season; April 2nd and 23rd. Sign-up here, gather your trailers, cargo bikes, or just your regular bikes (to assist cargo bikes) then arrive at 8:30 – 8:45 am to be registered to a bike crew. Grab coffee and breakfast treats, and then help load trees and tools onto bike trailers — and tally ho — you’re off to plant trees by bike. Help show the power of bikes to do work and spread shade and beauty around Eugene!
