TreeKeepers 2014

















TreeKeepers started in 2008 to provide 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 skill, pride, and appreciation to continue the stewardship of the urban forest. Participants 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, Planting, & Care
  • Tree Diseases & Invasive Plants
  • Proper Tree Pruning Techniques
  • Project Leadership
Saturdays:
  • August 1
  • August 8
  • August 15
  • August 22
  • August 29
  • September 12
  • September 19
ISA CEUs available for each session

Once 24 hours of volunteer service as a leader have been fulfilled, TreeKeeper participants receive an official hat.
