Upon receiving their certificates, all described their next volunteer project: coordinating neighborhood Tree Canopy Fund, working at information tables at Farmers Markets, assisting at upcoming Parkfairfax native plant sale, taking on restoration of trees at Timber Branch Parkway, serving on tree commissions and designing sculptures of good tree care for presentations.  Another crop of inspiring and dedicated volunteers joins the cause!
