Autumn Tree Inventory Workshop at Shaarei Beth-El Synagogue

October 20 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Oakville’s urban forest is a valuable asset to the town, with a structural value of more than $1 billion.  A key component of managing this asset is developing a tree inventory to determine the location, species, size, and health of each tree.

Join us at Shaarei Beth-El Synagogue on Saturday, October 20th from 2:00-4:00pm for our Autumn Tree Inventory workshop!  You will learn:

  • The basics of identifying tree species based on characteristics such as leaves and bark
  • How to use tools to measure the size and height of trees
  • How to assess the health of trees
  • How environmental factors can impact tree health
  • Why collecting this data helps to keep our trees healthy!

We will be outdoors for the duration of the workshop (2 hour). Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes!

We will meet at the Synagogue’s main entrance.

Register here.
