The City Forester is holding one more training session for anyone who wants to participate in the Providence Street Tree Tally on Tuesday, June 20, at the Chamber of Commerce, 30 Exchange Terrace (the building across the street from the skating rink and across the street from the Westin) from 5:30pm-8:00pm. If you are interested in this program, contact Nina Ridhibhinyo, Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The purpose of the Providence Street Tree Tally is to gather information about each tree planted along the city's streets so that this important resource can be properly cared for and developed over time. For each tree in each of the one hundred zones, we are noting the species, the diameter, the condition of the tree and the surrounding area, and a number of other data using Palm Pilots. About 100 people have volunteered so far, and 5 summer interns are covering the unassigned zones.
