Partner Event: Tree Pruning 101 Workshop
- American Elm Nursery 50 Marina Drive Alexandria, VA, 22314 United States (map)
We've all heard about the importance of trees for clean air, but did you know we also need them for clean water? Polluted runoff is the only growing source of pollution to the Potomac River, and trees are one of the best tools to combat it. Trees act as "nature's Brita filter" and help to remove pollutants from runoff before it reaches the Potomac, which is the source of drinking water for millions in our region.
Join Casey Trees and the National Park Service to learn proper tree pruning techniques to keep your trees beautiful and healthy. Don't forget to put your newfound skills to the test this spring to do your part in the fight for clean water!
