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
