Join the Friends of the Urban Forest team to help prepare for planting over 50 trees in Excelsior! Help us unload trees from trucks to the trees’ storage location on Friday morning for the planting on Saturday. We will be moving more than 50 trees, and 150 stakes, and we could really use your help!

No experience needed — we’ll supply tools and guidance. Wear work clothes and bring water to stay hydrated.

Exact meeting location TBD and will be sent a week before the event.
