The mission of the Community Forester Program is to care for, maintain and expand the Dallas Region Urban Forest through education, outreach and tree planting programs.

Dallas Community Foresters complete a thirty hour training class which is a combination of classroom instruction and field training.  Training classes are offered annually. 

Community Foresters will have the opportunity to volunteer thru:

*Community Education

*Community Outreach/Volunteer Events

*Community Tree Plantings

The opportunities will be diverse and may include school programs, civic group presentations, large and small Environmental events, or leading other citizens in planting.
