Growing Healthy Trees Workshop

Trees Forever is offering workshops for residents to learn about growing strong urban forests in their communities and in their yards.


Workshop participants will learn

  • how to plant the right tree in the right place
  • properly plant trees and prune and take care of trees.


There will be hands-on and classroom presentations led by experienced Trees Forever staff members and other invited tree experts. All training will incorporate opportunities for practicing skills learned outdoors.
