Event: FULL – Tree Keeper Workshop

April 19 @ 9:00 am - April 21 @ 2:30 pm

| $50

TreeKeepers receive training in environmental awareness and basic arboricultural principles. Through a mix of classroom and field training, participants learn about tree identification, site suitability, proper planting techniques, after planting care and pruning. Upon completion of the course, TreeKeepers are asked to give 24 hours of volunteer time to the Heartland Tree Alliance for municipal tree care projects around the Kansas City metropolitan region (it is not required to volunteer, although we highly recommend it). If you miss a class during the training, you can make it up at a later date!
