We city-dwellers place a high value on our urban forest. Trees provide innumerable aesthetic and ecological benefits that a concrete jungle simply can’t. Join us for Selecting and Promoting Diverse Tree Species, a tree walk and presentation highlighting the benefits of diversity as protection against pests and pathogens, as well as information on how and where to pick the right tree for your planting site.
