Tree Maintenance

March 15 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Newly planted trees need support to survive. Let’s help young trees grow into healthy forests!

GVC volunteers have planted 36,000+ native trees across the Gunpowder Watershed. However, our work isn’t done after the trees are planted in the ground. Young trees are vulnerable to deer browsing and competition with surrounding vegetation.

Tree maintenance is a hands-on way for volunteers to improve the health of our local forests and waterways. These events are also a great way to earn community service hours!

Tree maintenance involves:

  • Removing invasive plants
  • Checking planted trees to see if the shelter needs to be removed
  • Making sure the tree is growing upright

When: March 15, from 3 – 6 PM

What to bring: Dress appropriately for outdoor work (long pants, long sleeved shirt, closed-toed shoes). Bring a hat, work gloves (if you have them), and a filled water bottle.

Directions: Meet us at 830 Bird River Beach Rd Middle River, MD 21220.

Follow GVC event signs to a gravel drive that a tenth of a mile past the main house, we are not parking at the house- the address is used to help locate the site. The planting site is back down a gravel drive. Please park along the side of the gravel driveway once you turn in. Look for a white pick-up truck, GVC event signs and the registration table.
