Tree Steward Training Part 3 and Graduate Refresher (Rocky River Reservation)
April 1 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
**Makeup Event (no Part 4 credit this time, just Part 3 and a graduate refresher)
Holden Forests & Gardens and Western Reserve Land Conservancy have partnered to provide Sherwick Tree Steward Trainings where citizens learn how to plant, care for and maintain trees. Training residents to maintain existing and newly planted trees is critical to the success of the Cleveland Tree Plan and our collective reforestation work.
This is Part 3 of a 4-part series; you must have completed Parts 1 and 2 before registering for this training. Please visit our event calendar for other training dates and times. These do not have to be completed at once but it is recommended.
We are proud to partner with Cleveland Metroparks for this training. Please bring gloves, water and a snack. We will provide pruners, loppers and saws, and disinfecting hand spray. The site is typically dry but is a tall succession meadow. Warm layers, waterproof pants and boots will be beneficial!
This is a 2 acre restoration site with ~400 trees and shrubs in need of pruning. This site has been established for ~3 years and is now in need of some structural pruning attention. You will be pruning and re-caging trees.
