Citizen Forester Tree Planting Class

May 1 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

What better way to celebrate trees in our community than by planting them! We will be wrapping up Arbor Week and Mayor’s Greening Initiative festivities in the West Grand Neighborhood with a Tree Planting Class at Stocking Elementary on May 1st from 5:30-7pm with guest teacher Aaron Konn from Consumer’s Energy. Make sure to also check our events page for more information on all of the tree plantings happening in the neighborhood the week prior to this class!

Just because Arbor Week is over doesn’t mean you can’t plant a tree in your yard! Join Friends of Grand Rapids Parks for our Tree Planting Class to learn the skills it takes to grow a tree as part of the Citizen Forester course series. Participants of this free workshop will learn the ins and outs of tree plantings including site selection, tree species, proper ways to take care of newly planted trees, and more. Anyone is welcome to attend so please bring a friend!
