Tree Planting Workshop

January 28 2023 from 10:00 am 12:00 pm

$20 member / $35 nonmember
Instructor: Rafael Renteria
Ages 12 and up

November to February is the best time to plant trees in Houston. In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn best practices for tree planting: how to pick the right location, prepping the site, digging the right hole, and post-planting care to give the trees you plant the best chance at survival.

Class will be held rain or shine and will involve outdoor activity. Please dress for the weather and wear close-toed shoes.

Instructor bio: Rafael Renteria has worked with trees since graduating from Texas A&M in 2019. He has worked as a park ranger, tree climber, and tree farm manager with Trees for Houston, and now works as the Arboretum’s Forest Ecologist.
