Certified Arborist to Speak About Proper Tree Watering



Workshops scheduled in May

Appropriate tree care begins with proper watering and that’s why Truckee Meadow Community Forestry Coalition and Truckee Meadows Water Authority are hosting a free Tree Watering Workshop this month to help residents and homeowners care for the local community forest. Join Dale Carlon, Certified Arborist, for a workshop on how to properly water your trees at one of the following times:

  • Wednesday, May 11 at 5:30 p.m. and
  • Tuesday, May 17 at 5:30 p.m.

“Trees have incredible benefits and contribute to the long-term environmental health and beauty of our community,” Lora Rose Richards, TMWA Administrator of Conservation & Community Outreach said. “We live in a high-desert environment with limited precipitation. All of the trees in our community require supplemental water to survive here. The workshop will help residents care for their trees while being as water-efficient as possible.”

Each workshop will be held at TMWA’s main office, 1355 Capital Blvd. in Reno, and will last one hour. Workshops are open to the public, so please RSVP by calling (775) 834-8005 or emailing [email protected].

The Mission of the Truckee Meadows Community Forestry Coalition is to enhance the protection and preservation of the public and private community forest through education, research, conservation and collaborative policy development.
