Fairbanks Community Tree Stewards

Sixteen people learned to plant and care for trees and shrubs during the Division of Forestry's Community Tree Steward Course in Fairbanks in May. The five evening classes covered tree biology, problem diagnosis, common insects and diseases, species selection, planting, pruning, and other tree maintenance.

Tree Stewards practiced their new skills by pruning trees at Weeks Field Park near the Noel Wien Library and planting two trees at Snedden Park. In exchange for the class, Tree Stewards agreed to donate 15 hours on community forest projects in the next year.
