Thank you for choosing to join us and Durham Tree Advocates! This workshop is FREE and open to the public. This is the second of two workshops in our Tree Keeper Certification Series. Tree Keepers should be prepared to attend at least one tree planting this season and utilize your newfound skills to teach others the basics of tree planting and care. If you are planning on attending please register below!
This workshop will focus on the basics of planting. Trees are essentially a lifetime investment. How well your tree, and investment, grows depends on the type of tree and location you select for planting, the care you provide when the tree is planted, and follow-up care the tree receives after planting.
The learning portion of the workshop will take place from 1 to 2, followed by a planting exercise along Burch Avenue from 2 to 4. Anyone not attending the learning portion that is still interested in helping to plant trees is welcome! Our goal is to plant around 100 trees of 10 different species:
We will be meeting at Burch Ave Park.
