Class Preview: Trees 101

There are still a few spots left in our next free class! Trees 101 will be held on Saturday, June 25th from 9 a.m. until noon at the Casey Trees headquarters, 3030 12th Street NE. Registration is required if you want to attend, so be sure to sign up!

Staff members Priscilla Bocskor and Shawn Walker will teach you a bit about everything, from Casey Trees’ programs to understanding the basics of tree anatomy. You will also learn about the benefits of trees and how to identify tree species. For the last hour of the class, you can practice your new tree identification skills during a tree walk in the Brookland neighborhood led by Shawn. A light breakfast will be provided.

Whether you're looking to become a Citizen Forester or just to learn more about the District's trees, Trees 101 is a great way to connect with our city's urban forest. If you can't make it this Saturday, don't forget about our other summer classes, including Trees 201 on July 16 and Stand Up for Trees on August 27. Be sure to check our calendar for more upcoming events as well. 

What kind of tree do these leaves belong to? You'll learn the answer and much more at Trees 101.
