Spring is almost here, and Newton is looking for volunteers to join its Citizen Pruners corps to help keep local trees healthy.
Interested residents will be trained in tree maintenance and pruning techniques. People who complete their training will work on trees during supervised pruning sessions in locations throughout the city.
Classes will be held on Monday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. on March 19, March 26, and April 2 at the Albemarle Field House. A hands-on training session will be held Saturday April 14, from 8 a.m.-noon.
Tools will be supplied. Ladder climbing is not required, all citizen pruning is done from the ground. To register or get more information, contact Newton’s Director of Urban Forestry, Marc Welch at (617) 796-1500 or email@example.com.
