Interns practiced safe tree staking techniques outside of their school during an internship meeting.

The Richmond High School Urban Forestry Interns practiced planting trees this week in anticipation for their first tree planting event this weekend. In the front of their school, the students learned the proper International Society of Arboriculture methods for planting and staking trees. They practiced by readjusting some old stakes on trees that last year’s interns planted.

On Saturday, October 8th, the Interns will participate in planting nine fruit trees for a community in Richmond.
