Celebrate Arbor Day with Casey Trees as we inventory trees in Judiciary Square and share this holidays implication of encouraging stewardship in the nation’s capital.
The event will begin with a small history the Arbor Day and its festivities. Then participants will receive a short, hands-on training, learning the tools and techniques. Participants will split into groups and begin assessing trees. We will document tree species, height, diameter of the trunk, width of the crown, overall health, and more.
Who Should Attend?
Open to the general public, you do not need any prior experience to join us. If you have participated in our Trees 101 or Trees 201 class, this will be a great way to put your knowledge into action!
We will plan to conduct the inventory rain, shine or with frosty temperatures so please wear appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes for walking short distances. Participants are welcome to bring water and light snacks.
Judiciary Park is on the corner of 5th St and Indiana Ave. NW and is just south of E St. NW from Judiciary Square Metro Station.
