Free Shade Tree Workshop, Jan. 8 at the Community Center

The West Sacramento Tree Program is a comprehensive municipal urban forestry program which has become a regional model for tree education, planting and care.

Urban trees provide benefits that are fundamental to the city’s liveability—qualities such as clean air and water, cooler streets and homes, beauty and wildlife habitat.

The City provides free shade trees to residents, businesses, schools, churches and non-profit organizations. . .but first, you must attend a free shade tree workshop to learn about tree planning and care.

The final free shade tree workshop of the 2013/2014 season is Wednesday, Jan. 8, 6 p.m.-7:30 p.m. at the West Sacramento Community Center, 1075 West Capitol Ave., West Sacramento 95630.

There are 9 species of trees to choose from. Specific species are chosen based on their resistance to pests and diseases, structural integrity, and friendly root systems. More details at www.westsactrees.org. To reserve your seat at the workshop, Call (916) 617-4620.

This workshop will fill up fast, so don’t wait to call!
