Pruning Leader Training
July 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This year, Friends of Trees is set to prune 400 young street trees in Eugene and we need your help!
We are looking for volunteers who are interested in a brand new volunteer role- Pruning Leaders! Similar to Crew Leaders, Pruning Leaders will pair up and guide volunteers in the fine art and science of pruning young street trees along with Friends of Trees staff.
This exciting training will give you the necessary skills to lead teams to prune young street trees in Eugene! We will have a brief demonstration of proper pruning technique, then break into small teams and practice our new skills on some trees near the office. Friends of Trees pruning events will be on Saturdays from July – early September. All we ask is you try and make it to 2 of the events. The pruning event dates this summer are 7/28, 8/11, 8/25, 9/8, and 9/22.
Food and beverages will be provided!
When: Thursday, June 26th
Time: We will open the doors at 5:30 for food, drink, and mingling fun. Training starts promptly at 6:00.
Where: Registration is required! Information on location and more details will be sent via email to those who RSVP.
Space for this training is limited! Registration is required so please register before the event is full!
