Join us for a virtual training session to learn how you can help save our remaining public elm trees! Visit sactree.com/events to sign up.
Sacramento’s historic elms are under attack! Dutch elm disease (DED), a fungal disease with no known cure, has destroyed thousands of elms around Sacramento since the 1990s. We invite you to join the Sacramento Tree Foundation and the City of Sacramento in the fight against DED. As a Community Scientist, you will lead the charge and through this training, be given the knowledge, skills, and tools to monitor your local elms for DED symptoms using your own mobile device. You will report your findings May thru September, the Sacramento Tree Foundation will confirm cases of DED, and the City will take action to prevent further spread of the disease.
