The class is limited to 20 individuals, and we must have a minimum of 10 registered in order to hold the class. Priority will be given to residents of 22401.

In addition to the 10 classes of the course work, you will be required to complete 2 pruning sessions (tentative dates are Saturdays -3/18 & 3/25) for 3 hours each and a tree ID class for two hours to be scheduled in early May.  There is no fee for the course, but a short interview with each applicant is required to gauge their commitment to the program.  You will be required to have a professional hand pruner (Felco is the preferred pruner of choice) and a hand saw for pruner training

Tree Fredericksburg Tree Stewards are required to donate 20 hours volunteer hours every year in order to continue qualifying for Tree Steward designation. These hours include classwork, meetings, volunteer activities, education, and outreach activities. The goal is to have graduating tree stewards commit to being part of the Tree Fredericksburg Tree Steward group and continue to help serve our community with their volunteer efforts. This is a class for those who want to serve our community for years to come. Registration for the course will begin on 8-1-22 and registration closes on 1/2/23.
