Tree Blitz Training
June 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
Tree Blitzers aren’t afraid to talk to new people and love planting trees. Tree Blitzers go door-to-door offering to plant trees on residential properties. Tree Blitzer training familiarizes our volunteers with various native tree species, how to properly plant a tree and how to canvass. We want you to feel comfortable talking to residents about the value of trees and how to care for trees, and this training will prepare you for that role.
