This session on Monday, August 27 from 1:30 to 3:00 pm, will focus on the best trees for an urban environment and how to properly install, maintain, and enjoy them. Often, we forget that trees are very much like people and they can suffer the same types of stressors. We will learn “what to do” and “how to do it” properly. Did you know you can have a back yard arboretum? We will also learn about the Tennessee Urban Forestry Council and its many collaborative partners who work secretly across the state to certify these serene nature areas for your viewing pleasure!
Registration is required.
