Learn more about trees and make a difference

N.C. Cooperative Extension, Gaston County Center is seeking volunteers that have passion for community safety and tree health in their communities. Our vision is that this group will serve as a core group of individuals who will meet and work together to complete community projects in the future. Volunteers will be trained to access urban and suburban trees one night a week for four weeks. Volunteers will learn tree identification, management recommendations, tree measurement, and data entry. There will be small homework practice assignments given to participants in between meetings. Upon completion volunteers will receive a certificate honoring their commitment to this program.

What is the objective?

Our primary objective is to establish a capable volunteer base to perform tree assessment for local municipalities or neighborhoods within Gaston County. Trees along streets, within parks, and along sidewalk spaces are often subject to many stressful events. Often problems are overlooked in these spaces until they present a hazard to the community utilizing the space. A volunteer base trained to monitor tree health and generate a report could help those managing these spaces to make cost effective decisions and provide historical data for the future management.

When are certification course meetings?

September 12th, 19th, 26th, and October 3rd     6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m.
