In this hands-on class with our staff arborists we will cover all as pects of the why, when and how of tree planting, first in the classroom and then outside in our botanical collections. Specifically, we'll discuss what to look for at the nursery (and what to leave behind), choosing the right tree for the right place, site preparation, root pruning and proper installation techniques. And to make sure your trees survive and thrive, we'll also cover post-planting care, mulching and watering regimes. Pre-registration is required.
