What to Bring: hammers, clippers, loppers, plastic cable ties, clipboards and pencils. Also be sure to bring water, work gloves, boots, insect repellent & sunscreen, large plastic buckets and tools for punching holes in tubes may be helpful too

What We’ll Do: We’ll straighten up the tubes, clean out weeds and debris in tubes, re-secure the tubes to stakes, remove tubes and plastic weed mats where trees are dead or completely browsed, and record plant conditions & mortality
