Class Preview: Trees 201

Want to improve your tree identification skills, or gain a better understanding of how to select trees for planting in an urban environment?

If you'd like some help fine-tuning your understanding of trees, join us Saturday, July 16 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM at our Brookland Headquarters for Trees 201: Tree ID and Selection. Led by Urban Forestry Manager Sara Turner and Urban Forestry Instructor Shawn Walker, this class will provide the ins-and-outs of tree identification and selection, including both classroom and hands-on, field instruction.

While Trees 201 is geared towards Citizen Foresters and Project Organizers, all interested in building their knowledge of tree selection and identification are welcome. A light breakfast will be provided, and Continuing Education Units are offered for ISA-certified arborists. Make sure to register by Tuesday, July 12, as participants will be given a brief assignment in preparation for the class.

If you're unable to attend Trees 201, check out our calendar for more upcoming classes and events.
