While balancing the ongoing care of city trees (pruning, mulching, fertilization, pest control) to maximize their lives, municipal arborists (tree surgeons) must juggle a myriad of other tree-related tasks: where the next trees will go, how will these trees affect the surrounding areas (streetscape design, parking, overhead and buried utilities, etc), and how to balance a dense urban core with tree coverage.
It’s a complicated job, but an ever-important one as our cities continue to grow. Will nature be allowed to thrive in our most populated areas? Join Kay Evanovich for this Lunch and Learn as she dives into what your local arborist does.
This event is free with registration. Bring your lunch and learn with us!
