To kick off this years first Plant a Tree Make Our City Cool
program we decided to travel a really far distance to deliver an educational session to some super cute pre-kindergarden students. We went all the way to the American School of Guatemala! Well, not literally, but digitally we were able to deliver a great version of Plant a Tree Make Our City Cool. The focus of the presentation was geared to how ‘Trees are Cool’. Given the circumstances of using Skype we had to make sure it was really interactive to keep the kids engaged. Pat Mocc went over his super cool safety equipment, which the kids LOVED…especially the big saw (OOOOoooooo Ahhhhhh). He also brought in many samples of different branches from around our head office which they found particularly fascinating because no branches at this time of year had any leaves, this is something the children only associated with a dead tree in the warm climate of Guatemala. The class was filled with giggles and many questions about being an arborist who climbs trees! We even got to see some of the student’s awesome drawings of Pat Mocc and trees!
