TreeKeepers includes several levels and types of classes, ranging from educational presentations to hands-on training that teaches citizens how to care for their trees and environment. Some of the hands-on training allows citizens to perform work on public trees that requires a permit; these classes will have a “test of competency” to certify citizens in best urban tree care practices. Certified tree planters and pruners will be encouraged to assist TreeBaltimore partners at spring and fall tree planting and pruning events. Certification and Classes are free and open to the public! Upon completion, they receive a certification card(s), TreeKeepers t-shirt, sweatshirt, beanie and a hat.
The class location for Spring 2019 series will be Virginia Baker Recreation Center located at 2601 E Baltimore Street in Patterson Park.
