Rural Tree Planting Supervisor – Volunteer

Location: Various locations within 1-2 hours’ drive from Melbourne

One of TreeProject’s main activities is tree planting. We started as a tree-planting group 33 years ago, and now our tree planting days have spread across Victoria, involving hundreds of volunteers each year. Rural plantings are on private farms, assisting landholders to revegetate their land.

Every planting day needs two supervisors to ensure that the plantings are carried out smoothly, giving the seedlings the highest chance of survival. TreeProject is looking for several key volunteers who can take on this role.

Rural planting supervisor tasks include:

  • Attend rural tree planting days during winter and spring
  • Assist the landholder in setting out the revegetation site
  • Ensure approx 20 volunteers are conducting themselves safely throughout the day
  • Induct volunteers on planting techniques and the plan of the planting day. This is to ensure seedlings are being planted correctly (roughly or incorrectly planted seedlings can have a reduced survival rate)
  • Liaise with the landholder
  • Keep the groups moving on their assigned tasks throughout the day
  • Picking up and packing up tools.

Planting sites are within 1-2 hours’ drive from Melbourne, starting at 9 am and finishing by 4 pm. Plantings are on weekends as well as weekdays.

Weekday plantings have a mix of corporate volunteers and members of the community.

Weekend plantings are generally members of the community.

TreeProject is looking for several people who have experience in tree planting, or are willing to learn, and can work independently.

Potential supervisors would attend a TreeProject induction/training session and one or two planting days with an experienced TreeProject supervisor, after which they would attend planting days independently.
