We’ve cancelled this Tree Maintenance opportunity due to the Memorial Day holiday. Please visit our online calendar of events for our other environmental stewardship opportunities. Thank you!
Note: Participants are expected to wear face masks during this event. The event will be held outdoors and adhere to our COVID-19 social distancing policy.
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.
