Saturday workshop to teach people how to maintain shade trees

MIDDLEBURY — There will be a Shade Tree Giveaway and Tree Planting and Care Workshop this Saturday, June 6, from 10-11:30 a.m. at the Middlebury Union Middle School.
Attendees will learn how big trees benefit our community and how to take care of our young and old trees. They also will participate in a hands-on tree planting demonstration. Fifteen free shade trees — including burr oak, elm, red maple, sycamore and swamp white oak — will be raffled off to attendees.
This free workshop is sponsored by the town of Middlebury. It is made possible through a grant from the Vermont Urban and Community Forestry Program (also known as VT UCF), a partnership between the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks & Recreation and the University of Vermont Extension. The aim of the grant is to help communities care for tree canopy by taking the necessary actions to developing and sustaining a community wide tree program.
Organizers of this workshop are urging people to learn more about becoming a volunteer for keeping Middlebury’s tree canopy healthy, and perhaps will win one of the 15 trees.
“If you are not already a ‘tree lover,’ become one and help beautify Middlebury,” they said.
For more information, or to register, call Nan at 989-9036 or Karri at 388-6249.
