Tree Steward Certification Training

One of the most effective solutions to combating climate change is available right here in Fredericksburg. Trees capture and store carbon, slowing global warming. And in urban environments trees do this and much more—they also cool our city so consumers use less electricity. You can help restore these valuable resources and bring more trees to the city of Fredericksburg. Join us for a Tree Steward Workshop to learn the skills and knowledge to plant and care for Fredericksburg’s trees. Register now for the Tree Steward Class

To date, Tree Fredericksburg Tree Stewards have planted over 8000 trees in our City.  Today these trees are upwards of 50 feet tall and capturing thousands of pounds of carbon per year. Trees also remove particulates from the air, so Fredericksburg residents can breathe cleaner, healthier air.

You can help restore and nurture Fredericksburg’s trees to improve the health of residents, provide habitat for birds, bees, and other pollinators, and improve the health of the Chesapeake Bay. And yes, you’ll be doing your part to save the planet. Sign up for the tree stewards class today. 

Classes begin January 7th and are held weekly for 1.5 hours on Tuesday evenings.  The pruning and tree identification classes will be held in March.

Hope to see you there!
