US Forest Service Tree Education Workshop Text Size

Event takes place on January 12, 2017 at 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM
250 Chestnut Street Holyoke, MA 01040 (Holyoke Public Library)

Join our interactive session to learn about the benefits of urban trees in your community and the different components of “green streets.” Learn

how to make your neighborhood more beautiful and environmentally friendly through tree care and maintenance, proper street tree selection and placement, and the best ways to ensure they thrive on your property, from planting to maintenance. Participants will also learn about the components of an urban watershed and how tree care contributes to clean water and more attractive streetscapes for the entire city and region. This program is presented as the first of three workshops about green streets in downtown Holyoke that will take place in early 2017.

Enjoy some light refreshments during this FREE, FUN, and INFORMATIVE event, and learn about how to become involved in the creation of green streets in the city of Holyoke. This event is open to ALL AGES, including school-aged youth.

Don’t worry if you do not know much about trees, you will know a lot more when you leave the event! AND, if you own property in the downtown area, you may qualify for a FREE TREE planted on your property!
