Volunteer: Mulch and Prune Trees

December 6, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Wednesday, December 6, 9:00 – 11:00 AM

Lea McKeighan Park

125 NE Chimpan Rd
Lee’s Summit, MO 64063

Great for a Small Group!


Help Heartland Tree Alliance mulch and prune small trees at Lea McKeighan Park in Lee’s Summit Missouri!


Mulch is so important in young tree care not only to protect the bark from string trimmers and lawn mowers, but also to help retain moisture during our dry months. No prior experience is needed to be a mulching volunteer.


In addition, we will also need to prune the trees. These trees are small and could use some minor pruning to help correct broken branches, remove suckers from the base or train a strong central leader.  Volunteers with pruning experience, or TreeKeepers, will handle the pruning activity.


Tools will be provided, but please wear gloves, sturdy shoes, long pants and bring a refillable water bottle. Online advance registration required; click Register button below. Immediately after registering, volunteers will receive an auto-email with more information. If you have a group or questions: Contact Sarah at 816-561-1086 or email sarah.crowder@bridgingthegap.org.


We apologize that we are not able to offer or sign off on court-mandated community service or disciplinary service.
