A thriving tree canopy can be a real asset to a neighborhood, but maintaining that lush resource might seem daunting at times. Storms, invasive species, diseases and an aging tree population can all take their toll. To help neighborhoods protect their trees, the University of Kentucky’s Urban Forest Initiative is offering free urban tree health and care workshops to neighborhoods in 20 Central and East Central Kentucky counties from June through August.

The Robinson Forest Field Day, a day of family fun and educational activities, will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 3.

A recent day-long workshop at the University of Kentucky encouraged 120 Kentucky middle-school girls to consider STEM careers.
