Communtiy Forester Program schedule announced

Friday, February 19

In a coordinated effort to enhance and preserve Denver's urban tree canopy, The Park People and Denver Parks and Recreation have teamed up to launch a new training program that empowers individuals to lead tree planting and tree care activities within the community.

The original Community Forester program was established in 2003 to educate residents on how to properly care for trees. This year, The Park People and the City have elevated the status of the program by expanding the training to a new level of depth and sophistication. Once trained, Community Foresters can lead and participate in tree planting and care projects in their neighborhoods as well as activities for The Park People, Denver's Forestry Division, and the Mile High Million tree planting initiative. These new high-level volunteers will help ensure that Denver's prized urban environment does not decline despite the economic challenges faced by many cities.

Community Foresters will serve as urban forestry advocates within the community by participating in tree distribution and planting events; canvassing neighborhoods for new tree planting opportunities; conducting tree health checks; performing young tree pruning; and serving as tree advocates in their neighborhoods.
