If you’re proud to be a tree-hugger, here’s something right up your alley: The Urban Forest Advisory Committee is sponsoring a program that trains residents to care for neighborhood trees and urban forests.
These monthly training sessions will be about 3 hours of in-class training, followed by about 2 hours of hands-on field training.
Anyone who signs up for the class will learn things like proper pruning techniques around utility lines, how to advocate for neighborhood tree preservation, and how to identify tree diseases.
The first session was last week–but upcoming sessions on Wednesday, July 9, and Thursday, August 14, will meet at the Texas AgriLife Extension Service Center on Coit Road.
The fall sessions on Wednesdays, September 10, October 8, and November 12 will all meet at Reverchon Park.
If you’d like to sign up for one of the classes, do so know because they’re filling up fast. Just e-mail Eric Larner or visit dallastrees.org.
