Trees are a major capital asset to our city, towns, and each neighborhood. They are working hard to provide aesthetic, functional, and environmental benefits to improve the quality of life. In order to plan and maintain a sustainable community forest, it is essential to learn critical functions and how to properly maintain trees so they continue to provide those important benefits. This virtual program will provide basic knowledge about tree selection, installation, and the proper maintenance required to keep trees safe, healthy, and functional in the urban landscape.
