February 23 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 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: February 23 from 2 – 4:30 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.
