Best Western Inn and Conference Center and at Ridgeview Park 

On behalf of Waynesboro Parks & Recreation, Trees Virginia and the Department of Forestry we are excited to bring you the 19th annual Waynesboro Tree Care Workshop – Trees Don't Grow on Money Either and ArborMaster Tree Training. From the derecho to late season snow storms the past few years have been tough on urban trees.

Regardless of where you work – government or private industry these storms have taken a toll on one of most valuable resources – our trees. This year’s lineup of speakers will not only inspire you but give you the tools necessary to properly evaluate your landscape from site selection to purchasing good plant material to proper planting and pruning techniques. Join us to learn more about how to play a vital role in creating a sustainable healthy urban forest.
