Block Captains


Block Captains are our liaisons to communities. They are crucial in engaging their community on a grassroots level. We offer Block Captain Trainings where you will learn about the types of trees we offer, how and where we plant, the permitting process, and best practices for canvassing. We will collaborate with you and help you envision the tree palette that bests suits your neighborhood.

The primary responsibility of a Block Captain is collecting signed permits from homeowners who want trees and returning them to SOUL. They will also assist the homeowner in picking out the appropriate tree. If you are interested in learning more about reforesting your block or your entire neighborhood, we highly encourage you to attend this training.
