the project

This is a yearly festival centered on the appreciation of trees. There is no entry fee for either exhibitors or attendees. There are demonstrations of how trees are planted, trimmed and moved, by a number of local tree companies in the area. Children are given 'rides' up into the tree canopy. Information is given to attendees on how to care for their own trees. We have exhibitors such as garden clubs, state agencies, NGOs, city agencies and other groups that are tree / environment oriented.

We have a number of volunteers on the steering comittee who are involved with procuring food (which is provided free to the attendees and exhibitors), recruiting exhibitors, arranging marketing and signage, programs, and logistics and setup.

the steps

We will be having a number of meetings leading up to the Festival at which time various volunteer committees will deal with different aspects of the festival's organization as follows:

  • food
  • permits
  • marketing
  • advertising
  • volunteers
  • logistics
  • exhibitors
  • funding

why we're doing it

The Tree Festival’s mission is to educate residents about the vital contribution that community trees make to their health, welfare, and quality of life, and to provide an enjoyable, free-of-charge event that promotes the proper care of privately-owned trees.
