Master Tree Stewards Training Program
Have you noticed that the trees around your neighborhood could use a little work? Many of us can tell when a tree doesn’t look right, far fewer can put their finger on exactly what’s wrong, why, or what to do about it. Tower Hill and Worcester Tree Initiative want to change that; we want you to be able to see trees the way that we do.
The Master Tree Stewards Training Program has been created to teach people about trees, how they grow, whether they are sick or damaged, and how to care for them.
Mulch Volcanoes No Friend To Trees
Written By Tom Valovic
You’ve probably never heard of mulch volcanoes. Neither had I until recently. But one of the nice things about volunteering for an organization like the Worcester Tree Initiative is learning more about how to foster healthy growth of green spaces in urban areas. Creating and nurturing the trees that are foundational to those green spaces may seem simple but doing it right has its own complexities. As a former research analyst, I dug into this issue a little (so to speak). Here’s what I found.
