Correctly planting a tree is more complicated than just digging a hole. The Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department, through an inter-agency collaboration, is offering two free tree planting and care workshops to teach residents the right way to choose, plant and care for trees.
In addition to planting and care techniques, participants in the three-hour workshops also will learn how to choose the right tree for the right location, which is crucial to trees’ long-term health. Students also will learn how properly chosen and planted trees can reduce energy bills and increase home values.
Additionally, the workshop at Maryvale Community Center will be held in Spanish and English. All workshops are from 9 a.m. to noon.
The workshops are free, but registration is required. Participants can sign up by emailing Lysistrata.email@example.com or by calling 602-261-8810.
- Oct. 6, Maryvale Community Center, 4420 N. 51st Ave.
- Jan. 26, Pecos Community Center, 17010 S. 48th St.
The workshops were made possible by funding from the Urban and Community Forestry Financial Assistance Program administered through the State of Arizona Forestry Division –Urban & Community Forestry, and the USDA Forest Service.
