What do tree stewards do?
Volunteer Tree Stewards individually or as a team and receive tools, training and ongoing support to help our city care for trees in our local parks. Tree stewards visit their chosen park and report tree and park concerns; assist with planting and pruning of young, newly established trees; maintain site conditions; report vandalism; and report water system problems.
Volunteers are asked to serve our community for a one-year period, attend an informative, three-day training workshop with certified arborists and urban forestry experts, and commit to one program park day and one Keep Rio Rancho Beautiful event. This fun, interactive and valuable workshop includes classroom sessions and hands-on training.
