TLC (TREE LOVING CARE) WORKSHOP

Open to local residents, students, groups, business employees, while space remains, this popular tree-ific event is fun, rewarding, and educational too!
BONUS: there will be a FREE tree giveaway for some lucky participants to take to their Burlington homes to plant!
Hosted by BurlingtonGreen and the City of Burlington Forestry Department, this year’s TLC (Tree Loving Care) event will bring community members together to carry out some hands-on stewardship activities at a former tree planting location at Millcroft Park, in Burlington. Together we will do a tree inventory, learn how to properly plant a tree, create and scatter some native seed balls, and more.
The TLC event requires advance registration and will take place rain or shine.
