4 easy ways to participate





1. Order a tree 

You can order a 15-gallon tree that will be planted on your property by Ojai Trees volunteers.

We can advise you on appropriate species that will not only be beautiful, but also thrive in our climate and contribute to our ecosystem and food supply. Visit our Suggested Trees for ideas and inspiration.


15-gallon shade tree - $110

Fruit tree - $140

This price includes stakes and support straps if needed and soil amendment.  We deliver the tree to your property... and Ojai Trees volunteers will plant it for you! To order a tree, email us at trees@ojaitrees.org and we'll discuss the details with you.

2. Volunteer to plant trees with us

Join us as a volunteer at one of our planting events (spring and fall) and learn how to plant trees the right way so that they will flourish for years to come and add to our community tree canopy.

See upcoming planting dates.

To sign up as a volunteer, email us at trees@ojaitrees.org and we'll send you the details on the next planting event.

3. Dedicate a tree


Ojai Trees will plant a tree dedicated in honor of, or in memory of a loved one, or to celebrate a significant occasion.


Can I choose the tree and the location?

Your dedication tree will be planted somewhere in the Ojai Valley. We choose the species and location, plant the tree, and make certain it is watered and cared for. We do not place markers or identifiers on trees, nor can we tell you the exact location. We do invite our tree dedicators and recipients to participate in our tree planting and tree care events. Please contact us here. We would love to see you there!

What is included?

Your dedication will include a beautiful dedication card. The card pictures an image of a real Ojai landscape that includes a tree.  The original painting is from a collection created by Ojai's own TOPA Group of plein-air artists. 

You can provide your name and personal message on  2 lines available with a maximum character count of 30 per line. Suggested phrases that can be used include: With Love, With Sympathy, Thinking of You, and Congratulations.

How much does a Tree Dedication cost?

The price range is from $50 for a small tree, $75 for a medium tree and $150 for a large tree. Boxed specimen trees are available for $400.


How do I pay?

Pay online or by mail. Please note that we do not mail out dedications until payment is received. If mailing payment, please make checks payable to: Ojai Trees, 550 Buckboard lane, Ojai, CA. 93023

Where does my donation go?

Your donation pays for the tree and the costs of planting it. Tree Dedications also provide funds to support Ojai Trees community education and reforestation efforts including caring for new trees already planted in the Ojai Valley.
