VOL – City of Ramsey Tree Project

U of MN students from the Urban Forest Management: Managing Greenspaces for People (FNRM 4501/5501) will be leading two training sessions this Friday and Saturday to teach volunteers the skills needed for proper tree identification and then also what information to collect and how to do so in the field.  Friday evening’s session is ‘classroom’ style while Saturday will be a field session.  I’ve attached their flyer/info and interested persons can contact Chris Anderson  at canderson@cityoframsey.com  with questions or can go to: http://www.ci.ramsey.mn.us/Calendar.aspx for additional information.

  • Public Tree Inventory Indoor Session – Volunteers Wanted

    April 13, 2018, 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM @ Ramsey City Hall

    Attention community members, friends, nature-lovers, and outdoor enthusiasts, there is an excellent opportunity coming up to get involved with the development plan for the future of Ramsey’s urban forest! In the summer of 2018, the City of Ramsey is performing a public tree inventory, taking account of the species and condition of public trees. Taking inventory of public trees will allow the City to plan for threats, such as the infamous emerald ash borer that is devastating ash tree populations. It will also improve the stability of the urban forest by getting a sense for how much of a given type of tree is present, and to plan future plantings and tree maintenance.
