Tree Keeper Training
April 14, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmfree!
Soon we will all be planting trees, including the Burlington Parks, Recreation & Waterfront Department along Burlington’s streets. This spring Branch Out Burlington!, in conjunction with the Village of Essex Junction Tree Advisory Committee, are offering a Tree Keeper Training for anyone who cares about trees. The training session is led by the most experienced urban forester in Vermont–Warren Spinner, Burlington’s city arborist, and Elise Schadler, Technical assistant coordinator with the VT Urban and Community Forestry Program and UVM Extension. The program will cover information on how a tree grows, where to plant a tree and how to plant it and care for it, and how to prune your trees correctly. We hope this training session will help the public take care of trees where ever they are. Everyone is welcome, even those living outside Burlington. All attendees will receive a coupon for a free bag of compost from Green Mountain Compost. Attendees will also be entered in the drawing for a free tree! Light refreshments will be served.
We need to know who is coming so we bring enough refreshments
