Date & Time

Last Held: February 12, 2016
9:00am - 3:30pm (Check-in time: 8:30am)

Next offering tentatively planned for February 2017. Registration will open when course date is confirmed.

Description

Proper planting is far more than digging holes; it can literally determine life or death for a tree. You first must match the plant with the conditions of your site and then determine proper excavation depth and width. You also need to identify girdling roots and the location of trunk flares - then use suitable backfill to create good soil structure. You will learn how to take control of the process with detailed specifications to assist in evaluating, preserving and re-mediating trees on construction sites. Hands-on outdoor demonstrations will be provided if the weather cooperates.
