Do you love trees and shrubs? Are you interested in making a positive impact in your area?
Tree Care Advisors dive into topics like tree-centered biology, identification, pruning, and diseases and serve as hubs of knowledge and teaching in their communities and beyond!
The Minnesota Tree Care Advisor Program, founded in 1992, is one of our two programs (along with the Tree Steward program) that aid in the development of environmentally-focused residents through education and the promotion of volunteerism. Tree Care Advisor volunteers provide communities in Minnesota support and enhance our urban and community forests.
Tree Care Advisors are encouraged to fulfill volunteer roles as educators and facilitators, enabling the University of Minnesota, other State agencies, local municipalities, non-profit organizations, and community programs to more effectively help others help themselves.
We would like to thank the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MNDNR) and the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT), both of which have worked closely with the University of Minnesota Extension and the Department of Forest Resources in the development and support of the Tree Care Advisor program. This program is made possible through a grant from the USFS and MNDNR.
