Understanding the Tree Code: Tree Removal and Protection

Invasive Plants & Trees
Saturday, August 10, 10:30 am – 12 pm
Does invasive plant removal seem overwhelming in your yard or neighborhood open space? Join Planning and Parks Department staff to learn which species are known to be invasive locally, and techniques for proper removal and replacement.

Both workshops are FREE and open to the public with pre‐registration.
