Tree Foundation of Kern’s Citizen Forester Program

Melissa Iger and Ron Combs of the Tree Foundation of Kern have worked to design a program outline for teaching Citizen Foresters to help volunteers at plantings as well as homeowners, tree workers or anyone who is interested in trees.

For years, they have held Citizen Forester classes, but have worked without guidelines. Now that they’ve developed them, the foundation want to share with anyone who would like to offer these types of classes.

“It’s easier than reinventing the wheel,” says Iger, Tree Foundation of Kern’s Executive Director.
