Interested in learning how to prune trees?  Do you want to get outside and enjoy some fresh air with your neighbors?

Volunteers are needed to help prune street trees in the Eliot neighborhood on Saturday, January 10th. Portland Urban Forestry and the Albina Tree Team are partnering to offer this street tree pruning workshop to improve tree health and walkability in Eliot. Volunteers will meet at Dawson Park, learn the basics of tree pruning from a trained arborist, and then work in groups to prune street trees in the neighborhood.

Certified Arborists can recieve 3 hours of ISA CEUs for participating and leading small groups. Contact angie.disalvo@portlandoregon.gov for details!
