Volunteer Opportunity – reLEAF Duluth

The City of Duluth is re-launching reLEAF Duluth, which engages citizens in Duluth’s community forest. With reLEAF Duluth you will be able to help your community’s trees.

You’re invited to:
*Plant trees in areas where ash trees were removed due to EAB infestation.
*Water newly planted trees to ensure their health and vitality.
*Learn about pruning techniques and help newly planted trees by pruning for safety and aesthetics.
*Learn what to look for in unhealthy or risky trees to help the City track failing and unhealthy trees in our Urban Forest.
