Oracle Firewise teamed up with the Arizona Forestry Division to host a Tree Workshop presented by the Arizona Community Tree Council. About 50 residents attended the workshop held at the Oracle Fire Department on July 18. The Arizona Community Tree Council is, “dedicated to the care and planting of Arizona trees from seed to shade to sustainability.”

Alix Rogstad, program manager for the State Forestry Division and Tom Ellis of the Arizona Community Tree Council spoke and answered questions during the free educational workshop. Those in attendance learned how to select, plant and maintain their trees. They were also instructed on how to protect their homes against wild fires. This is one of many educational programs provided by the Oracle Firewise Board in maintaining Oracle as a Firewise Community.
