How-To See all

Dedicate a Tree

Planting a tree is one way to establish a living memorial that will bring peace, joy and security for generations. Likewise, the planting of a tree can be a gratifying act, which honors the memory of a friend or relative, or recognizes a special person or occasion.

Save The Elms Program (STEP) Citizen Scientist Training

Sacramento

Tuesday, May 31 6:00P - 7:30P

Help the Sacramento Tree Foundation and the City of Sacramento monitoring our remaining public elm trees for the problematic Dutch elm disease (DED). This training event will give you the tools and skills necessary to identify and monitor elms for DED symptoms. This is a training opportunity; monitoring elm trees is a volunteer activity that can be done on your own schedule! We ask that STEP Citizen Scientists commit to monitor selected elm trees three times between May and October.
