Most Saturdays from January through June, Urban Forestry hosts community workshops on a wide variety of tree topics. Workshops are organized by neighborhood Tree Teams or Tree Stewards and are located throughout the city. Although they often focus on local community concerns, all workshops are open to the public. Tree lovers with all levels of knowledge are welcome to participate. We hope you can join us!
