Volunteer to care for trees

Tree care

Hennepin County is seeking volunteers to help care for trees. Volunteers will take a full-day tree-pruning workshop and then have opportunities to help care for trees with partner organizations.

The workshop will be held Saturday, March 18 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Rockford Road Library, 6401 42nd Ave N in Crystal. The cost is $25 per person.

The workshop will cover tree identification, tree biology and proper pruning techniques through a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on, outdoor field experience. The class is open to the public, and no experience is needed. The University of Minnesota will provide the pruning tools and safety equipment.

Learn more and register by March 3.
