Tree Stewardship Workshops

Author: Joseph Kurtz

It’s round two of our Tree Stewardship Workshop and the pruning season is coming to a close fast!

We’re inviting Buffalonians, community members, and neighbors to a free, public workshop led by Caesandra Seawell, Program Manager for Keep Western New York Beautiful (KWNYB), and trained staff from the University Heights Tool Library (UHTL), who will be offering on-tree demonstrations of proper pruning and maintenance techniques for keeping trees of all ages healthy and happy to grow for many generations to come.

This is a ‘Learn by Doing’ workshop where No Skills Are Required. We will train you!

Once trained, participants can attend other workshop sessions in different areas of the city to hone their skills or schedule their own stewardship events for maintaining their neighborhood tree canopy. By providing communities with access to the right tools and knowledge, together we can restore Buffalo back to the urban forest it was. We look forward to getting snippy with you on the 15th.

Workshop Locations

Tuesday, September 15th | 6pm-8pm @ The University Heights Tool Library (5 W. Northrup Pl.)

Saturday, September 26th | 10am-12pm @ The Foundry (298 Northampton St.)

Please contact Caesandra Seawell or Joseph Kurtz for any questions:

Caesandra Seawell | KWNYB Program Manager | | 716-803-5566

Joseph Kurtz | UHTL Volunteer and Co-Founder of CoLab | | 716-982-4946

*The UHTL will supply pruning equipment, gloves, and bags but you are more than welcome to bring your own. Demonstrations will be performed on LIVE trees so please dress for the weather and be ready for some walking.

*Additional dates will be listed on the Liif Coach and University Heights Tool Library Facebook pages.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
