Tree Corps Volunteer in Aquidneck Park

The Newport Tree Conservancy needs your help to plant and care for Newport’s shared urban forest. This month, the group is working in Aquidneck Park. The park, which contains nearly 40 beech trees representing eight different cultivars, is a beautiful and relaxing open space in the heart of Newport. Several majestic trees have come down in the park over the last several years, and shade is at a premium. Starting in 2022, many of the beech trees located in the park became infected with beech leaf disease. Please help us continue to give these trees the proper love and care to preserve them in this iconic park by volunteering with our Tree Corps program. It’s a great way to get outdoors, learn about the trees in our city-wide arboretum, and contribute directly to the health and vibrancy of our community. The Tree Corps gathers Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon to care for young trees we’ve planted in Newport’s public parks and open spaces. Tools are provided, and experience is not necessary.
