Learn how to spot and report trees that are being killed by invasive non-native vines. Help educate your community and save our trees. Participation in the Tree Rescuer project will meet the requirement for conservation hours and several BSA conservation awards. Register today here.
Would you like to help save more of our native trees? Most of our neighbors have no idea that the invasive vines on their trees may eventually kill them and potentially make the trees hazardous. You can help your community by walking around to spot these trees and to drop off a brochure to alert the landowners. This is an excellent conservation project for Cubs and Scouts BSA as well as their families.
Join our region-wide program of community volunteers to help save our native trees from invasive non-native vines! This is a public education program to inspire others to control invasive vines.
During this NCAC Tree Rescuer session you will learn:
-How to survey your community for trees at risk
-How to recognize invasive (versus harmless native) vines
-What resources are available to help you work with your community
Besides the numerous environmental benefits of saving native trees from invasive vines, scouts can also earn conservation hours and units can earn several BSA conservation awards such as Conservation Good Turn , World Conservation Award and Keep America Beautiful Hometown USA Award.
