The Rhode Island Tree Council is holding its spring Tree Steward course in East Greenwich this year, in part because of the East Greenwich Tree Committee, a new group in town dedicated to preserving the trees we have, planting new trees and providing education to residents.
The course combines learning about trees, caring for trees and understanding how people and trees can best grow together. Participants will learn about tree biology, identifying trees, tree planting and pruning, among other things.
The EG course is one evening session and two Saturdays: Thursday, May 7, and Saturdays May 9 and May 16, at the EGPD Community Room. The course culminates with a tree planting at a yet-to-be-determined location. Suggestions are welcome!
You can register for the course at the www.ritree.org site or send an email to [email protected]
If you are interested in trees, perhaps you’ll consider joining the EG Tree Committee. They next meet Tuesday, April 14, at 7 p.m. For more information about the group, contact [email protected]
