Correctly planting a tree is more complicated than just digging a hole. Done properly, adding trees can reduce homeowners’ energy bills and increase home values.
The Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department, through an inter-agency collaboration, is offering a free tree planting and care workshop to teach residents the right way to choose, plant and care for trees. In addition to planting and care techniques, participants in the three-hour workshops also will learn how to choose the right tree for the right location, which is crucial to trees’ long-term health. All workshops are from 9 a.m. to noon:
The workshops are free, but registration is required. Participants can sign up by emailing Lysistrata.firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (602) 262-4925.
