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

Schedule (Saturdays, 9am-Noon):

  • July 28
  • August 4
  • August 11

ISA CEUs available for each session.

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