Master Tree Stewards
We're evolving our Master Tree Stewards Training Program to cover even more topics and provide more field experiences. We will still hold our original program annually as a basic training program but for grads of the program and experienced gardeners and stewards looking for more information the new model will offer opportunities for greater depth and ongoing skill development.
Look for our newest Master Tree Stewards course offerings among other classes on the upcoming events page.
Arbor Week 2019
This spring the annual celebration of trees, Arbor Day, is getting an upgrade to Arbor Week! Worcester Tree Initiative will be utilizing this week to plant trees in communities throughout central MA. We need planting opportunities, volunteer organizers, and tree planters!
Email Derek with your planting proposals at firstname.lastname@example.org. We need information like the address(es) of the planting, number of trees proposed, ownership of the property/properties. Proposals for neighborhoods or parks with low tree canopy will be considered stronger but all proposals are welcome.
