Tree Maintenance

February 16 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Event Navigation

Newly planted trees need TLC to survive. Spend several hours to help young trees grow into healthy forests!

Tree maintenance involves removing invasive plants, checking planted trees to see if the shelter needs to be removed and removing if necessary, digging out the planting tube, and making sure the plant is upright.

Community service learning hours available. Volunteers need to be at least 13 years old.
