Classes meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m at the Round House in Byrd Park. There is also one Saturday morning hands-on pruning class.
Requirements for becoming a certified tree steward:
- Complete the course.
- Complete 20 volunteer hours working along with experienced stewards; 10 of these hours must be pruning projects. Think of this as on the job training.
- Complete a pruning exam which is given at a tree.
- Propose and complete one project. The project does not need to be a major undertaking! A simple project will suffice and we will help you every step of the way.
To maintain certification we request at least 10 volunteer hours and 5 education hours each year.
Applications are closed for the 2018 course. If you’d like to be notified when information for next year’s class is available, please let us know by getting in touch with us at this link: Contact Us
