Starts at 8am - Stay as long as you can or want. We plan to be wrapped up with the supervised pruning in the neighborhood by noon
Cost: $5 suggested donation, though no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
Where: the Dunbar Garden space (NW corner of 11th Ave and University Blvd). Tucson, Arizona
Open to all. Learn how you can organize similar Neighborhood Forester efforts in your neighborhood.
After demonstration we will move to various parts of the neighborhood to get supervised hands-on experience as we help prune native food-bearing trees and shrubs in our neighborhood’s public rights-of-way.
This is an incredible learning opportunity as every six months we revisit and rework areas pruned so we see the effect of our good work and mistakes, thereby enabling us to improve and evolve with the expert guidance from certified arborist Aleck MacKinnon.
We’ll also cover how to prune to keep trees below power lines out of conflict with the utility lines.
Professionals can get continued education credits for the workshop from Aleck.
