Since 1997, the Neighborhood Tree Steward Training Program (formerly Neighborhood Tree Liaison Training) has worked to provide over 140 community members with the tools and resources to be active leaders and urban forest advocates in their neighborhoods. The Neighborhood Tree Steward Training is a 7-session course starting in September that covers general tree care, tree biology, tree identification, urban forest management and policy, and much more. No previous experience is needed to become a Neighborhood Tree Steward (NTS), but you do need a passion for trees, a desire to learn, and the commitment to help. Past NTS graduates have gone on to plant, prune, and photograph trees while educating members in their community about the importance of the urban forest.
