TreeKeeper training provides practical tree education over the course of 7 consecutive Saturday sessions (excluding Labor Day weekend) including: indoor & outdoor activities, lively presentations, and engaging hands-on demonstrations. Each 3-hour session is taught by Trees Atlanta staff or community tree experts. Upon completion of the series of 7 sessions, graduates will be trained in a manner that builds skills and pride to continue the stewardship of the urban forest in their own neighborhoods and communities. Participants will receive an eastern trees field guide, a native tree, and much more!

Training is for ALL levels and explores: 
– Atlanta’s trees & urban forests
– Tree selection and care
– Tree diseases & invasive plants
– Proper tree pruning techniques
– Project leadership skills
