Weekend Tree Pruning Party: US Route 40 Median
Saturday, February 19 • 10:00 am • 1:00 pm
Have you ever wanted to learn how to properly prune a tree so that it stays healthy and grows big & strong?
Join Blue Water Baltimore’s Forestry Team for a Pruning Party to help us prune and maintain some of our recently planted trees along the median of US Route 40. New to pruning? No worries! Novice volunteers and expert TreeKeepers alike are welcome to attend. This event counts toward your Treekeepers certification.
Please be prepared for working outdoors in cold weather. Wear lots of layers, warm boots, and gloves. Hats and sunglasses are also strongly encouraged. Feel free to bring your own gloves and tools if you have them. Useful tools include:
- Hand pruners (bypass)
- Arborist saws
- Pole saw/clips.
If you don’t have these, no worries! We will provide supplies. Pruning events are recommended adults and youth 10+.
A little care goes a long way in the life of an urban tree! We look forward to working with you soon!
