The Urban Forest Initiative is seeking volunteers interested in getting their neighborhoods involved in a brief (2 hours or less) hands-on training and survey session on tree health and care. In each session, participants will:

  • Learn about urban tree benefits
  • Learn to spot signs of unhealthy trees
  • Assess the health of neighborhood trees
  • Learn to support tree health
  • Complete a survey evaluation of the program


Open sessions are on Tuesdays and Thursdays in June, and each of the following dates has options for the morning, afternoon, and evening:

  • Thursday, June 2nd
  • Tuesday, June 7th
  • Thursday, June 9th
  • Tuesday, June 14th
  • Thursday, June 16th
  • Tuesday, June 21st
  • Thursday, June 23rd
  • Tuesday, June 28th
  • Thursday, June 30th

All trainings are FREE. Participants will walk away with a “goody bag” full of tree-related items and educational materials as well as access to an interactive map of your neighborhood's street trees.

If you or your group is interested in participating in one of these workshops, please email Grace Coy at
