Newly planted trees need establishment care for the first three years after you plant them to survive and thrive in their new home. When should you start watering your tree? Does your tree need mulch and compost? How long should you leave support stakes on your tree? Urban Forestry staff will host a live presentation to demonstrate best care practices for young trees in Portland.

The workshop will begin promptly at 12:00 pm with the presentation followed by a question and answer period.
