Do you want to play a greater role in re-treeing D.C.? Well — here are TWO ways for you to do just that!
This March we will hold our bi-annual Tree Planting Workshop. Traditionally, this class is aimed at teaching the ropes to future Citizen Forester Team Leaders about tree planting. This spring, we will offer two tracts.
The first tract is a residential tree planting workshop for people who want to learn how to properly plant and care for a tree in their own yards.
The second tract is a workshop for people who want to become a Citizen Forester Team Leader and will equip you with skills needed to lead others in planting trees at future events.
The foundation for a tree’s health and longevity is established the day it is planted. You will learn how to prepare a tree planting site and properly plant the tree to ensure its survival as well as the techniques critical to maintaining tree health including mulching and watering.
After the classroom session we will break into groups and practice new skills as we plant trees and add species diversity to American University’s arboretum.
