Planting shrubsFree Tree Trainings in July

Are you interested in helping to grow and care for Saint Paul’s urban forest? The Saint Paul Parks and Recreation’s Forestry section needs your help to provide ongoing care for the hundreds of new, young trees that are planted each year.

Level up your passion for trees by registering for two upcoming trainings, provided by the University of Minnesota - Department of Forest Resources. These trainings will focus on elevating your tree stewardship knowledge in areas of watering, planting and pruning. Individuals who participate in all six hours of training will be able to take the MN DNR Tree Inspector Exam for free.

Part 2
