September 2 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Join Trees Forever field coordinator Nick McGrath to learn more about growing your local tree canopy. The workshop will touch on many issues surrounding trees, including planting, care & maintenance, species selection, ordinances/tree lists and inventories. We will take a look at what Nick refers to as the “tree diversity funnel”, benefits of trees, impacts of landscaping on safety and retail business and some interesting ideas around cost-effective tree procurement.
Come celebrate with us as we honor the good work and good people who plant a better tomorrow every day through environmental stewardship and community service! Thanks to so many tree-loving individuals and organizations, we are greening and improving the places where we live, work and play – for today and for the future.

It will also act as an opportunity to learn about all of the grant opportunities that are available to communities and non-profit organizations through Trees Forever and our many partner organizations. Several of these grants open on September 1 and we want to encourage more people to apply and take advantage of the funding.
