Grow Your Tree Canopy

December 7 @ 5:30 pm 7:30 pm

Trees Forever and partners are excited to offer a pre-holiday “Grow Your Tree Canopy Workshop” for members of tree boards, tree committees, parks & recreation departments/boards, master gardeners, Treekeepers, the general public, and lovers of trees.  Scheduled for Tuesday, December 7th at the Polk City Community Center from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.; we will be unveiling our Top 10 ways to grow your community forest canopy.

Topics include grant programs for communities, FEMA disaster declarations, benefits of trees, community roadside plans, dealing with Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) and more.  This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the green infrastructure we so often take for granted and how we can make it more resilient for the future.  Lite holiday snacks provided.

This is a free event but registration is required for space and snack needs. For more information or questions contact Molly Walkner at 319-440-7756 or Jeff Jensen at 515-320-6756.
