The community's efforts are needed to plant 22,000 native trees and other plants in the Wodonga area this year.
Volunteers at Wodonga Urban Landcare are facilitating and coordinating the action plan care for the region's environment.
A group spokesperson said the catalyst for the tree planting program was an idea that community action was required to address environmental and sustainability challenges collectively.
