Heartland Tree Alliance is offering our Tree Keepers course this spring in Kansas City, Missouri. Tree Keepers is perfect for city employees, landscape providers, Master Gardeners, Master Naturalists, students, and retirees. All indoor sessions will be held at the Anita B Gorman Conservation Discovery Center with a pruning and planting field day at a nearby park (all tools will be provided). Sessions will run Tuesday and Wednesday 9:00 AM – 1:30 PM and Thursday 9:00 AM– 3:30 PM.  We have a great instructor, Chuck Conner, to teach you the basics of tree care.


If you have questions, please call Cathy Justice at 813-468-1208 or email, and she’ll be happy to help! If you cannot attend all the sessions, you can make them up at a later date (at no charge)!
