Tree Stewards Workshop
The Town of Wake Forest is seeking volunteers with a passion for trees, a desire to learn, and an interest in helping to become a tree steward in our community.
Volunteer tree stewards prune trees, plant new trees in parks and public areas, conduct tree inventories and educate citizens on proper tree care.
Participants in the program will receive free training on proper planting techniques, tree identification, pruning, fertilization and more. Volunteers that successfully complete the training will become Town of Wake Forest Tree Stewards.
Next Training Workshop - Sept. 28, 2019
The next training workshop for up to 25 residents is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 28, from 9 a.m.-12:30 pm in the Ground Floor Meeting Room at the Wake Forest Town Hall, 301 S. Brooks St.
Tree Stewards must pledge to contribute at least four hours of service within one year of their training. Many opportunities for service will be offered including providing information at community events, planting trees, and performing basic maintenance, such as mulching and watering.
Participants under the age of 18 must have the permission of a parent or legal guardian to volunteer.
