SPRINGFIELD, Vt. (AP) - Vermont residents can learn about tree health, identification, planting and maintenance as well as managing town forests in a tree steward program being offered this fall in Springfield.

The SOUL Tree Steward Program takes place four days next month at the University of Extension office.

Organizers say participants are expected to attend all classes and do a volunteer project in their community, such as creating a town tree ordinance, conducting a town shade tree inventory or organizing an Arbor Day tree planting event with a school.

The program takes place all day on Oct. 3 and Oct. 24, both Saturdays, and the evenings of Oct. 7 and Oct. 14. It costs $60 and registration is required.
