Volunteer to care for your community's trees

Maple Grove is looking for volunteers to help care for your community's trees, and we want you to help.  There are many ways you can be involved.  The most common and easy ways to help are to take part in community tree plantings, watering new trees, and pruning trees. Are you interested in more?

Maple Grove is hosting another free tree steward training this summer to help community members get involved with caring for the city's public trees.

Details for the free training are listed below.

The Tree Steward class, taught by the University of Minnesota, will:
