facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Learn how to properly select, plant and maintain trees for years of benefit and enjoyment. This workshop will help homeowners plant and maintain trees that live long and healthy lives, while protecting homes against wildfire.

Many residents in the Oracle and surrounding areas are concerned about the effects of the ongoing drought on their oaks, native and non-native trees and vegetation. This workshop will give homeowners the opportunity to learn about the life cycles of trees, how they adapt to adverse conditions and what they can do to help offset the negative effects.

Additionally, a state representative will be on hand to discuss the National Firewise program, and how it is being implemented throughout Arizona. Members of the Oracle Firewise Board will also be available to describe Firewise efforts made here in Oracle and their ongoing efforts to create a Firewise, safe and beautiful community.

Please join us for this free workshop on Saturday, July 19, 2014, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Oracle Fire Station, 1475 W. American Ave., in Oracle, AZ. You can register at info@aztrees.org or call 602-354-3023 or 896-2980. Walk-ins are welcome! A light breakfast and coffee will be generously provided by the Oracle Market.
