Tree Education

We consider continuing education critical to our mission. That said, we look to provide engaging classroom and field learning opportunities year-round that foster collaboration, prompt discussion and make us all better stewards of D.C.’s fragile urban forest.

We do School Tree Plantings in the spring and fall. Apply by May 1 to be considered for the upcoming planting season.

If you’re interested in learning tree identification skills and the process for identifying the right tree for the right place, we offer free classes and tree tours throughout the year. If you’re the organizer for a summer youth camp in D.C. and looking for a way to get students outdoors, consider applying for TreeWise — our nature- and place-based summer education program. Or simply download ROOTS, our sample curriculum.
