Webinar I: The Benefits of Trees
When:
Thursday, April 22 

Trees enhance our environment by reducing pollution, providing oxygen, and increasing the physical and psychological well-being of people.  Trees also save energy, help capture water and provide habitat for animals, insects and soil microbes that help keep carbon from our air.  We can enhance the services trees provide by planting more trees. Before you can plant a tree, you have to choose one. This involves understanding tree morphology - what forms and shapes are available - and how tree genetics regulates development. Once the choice is made, selecting a well grown tree that will perform as expected is very important.  Size, condition, freedom of disease and defect are critical selection parameters.  Inspecting trees in the nursery requires careful observation and you need to have a check list of what you are looking for.

Event Type: 

Trees often fail to thrive because they are improperly planted.  The first phase of planting is to analyze the planting site: space to grow, soil, water, and sunlight.  The site should be suited to the tree selected.  Once the planting location is identified, planting can begin.  Root washing!  We will discuss timing of planting, how to make the planting pit, the role of organic materials, what goes in the backfill, fertilizer, mulch, and watering devices.
