TreePeople, the Los Angeles-based nonprofit dedicated to planting and preserving the city’s leafy canopy, started a Citizen Arborist program last Saturday.
Thirty-one people signed up to take four-hour courses for seven straight Saturdays in such topics as planting and caring for trees, tree anatomy, pruning, pest and disease management and tree identification.
The summer session is closed, but you can apply for fall and winter sessions at treepeople.org/citizenarborist.
