Guy Miller Tree Plant

Guy Miller Tree Plant is a program designed to encourage Scouts in Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington to become more involved with tree planting as part of their community service projects. This program offers a hands-on learning experience to Scouts of all ages, and teaches the value of maintaining our environment and green spaces. Over the past three decades, 63,500 Scouts have participated in over 1,500 tree plants. During this same time, well over two-million seedlings have been planted.

Who Can Participate?

Anyone can sign up as an individual or as a unit (Must bring supervision). This is a great opportunity for scouts to get involved with service projects within your local communities. The experience will provide scouts with hands-on activities for renewing and understanding the importance of our forests.


When are Tree Plants?

Scout tree plant events take place weekends during the months of November through May.

 

Where are Tree Plants?

There are various locations throughout Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington. You are welcome to seek out your own site and still qualify for the segments and ribbon year round. You are not bound to the sites offered but encouraged to participate as a unit.

 

Sponsored sites will have the following materials prepared for you:

- A site that is prepared for tree planting (planting Christmas trees is not included in this program)

- A person to coordinate planting and demonstrate proper planting techniques

- An average of 10 seedling trees for each youth to plant

- A report with number of trees planted and number of participants (youth and adult)

 

Leadership

Leadership is required. Each planting site is backed by a continued sponsor who opens and prepares a site for individuals to come out and participate in reforestation. Each site varies in its accommodations. Youth are required to be accompanied by an adult leader. Check site specific details to ensure you are prepared prior to arriving the day of.

 

Community Service Hours

Scouts can use this experience to record service hours for Journey to Excellence. Each participant can earn up to 3-5 hours of community service hours depending on site.

 

Incentive

Segments will be available to purchase at the Nor'west Scout Shop.

 

To earn a Conservation Good Turn certificate for your Unit, complete the Unit Tree Plant Report Form and submit soon after your tree plant.


If your unit wants to go above and beyond to earn a ribbon AND a Unit certificate, you can watch a Tree Planting DVD before your plant. The DVD is available to check out at the Council Service center OR you can watch it online by scrolling to the bottom of the page. Be sure to check that you watched the video on the Unit Tree Plant Report Form.
