Date & Time

Last Held: February 27, 2019
9:00am - 3:30pm (Check-in time: 8:30am)

Next offering tentatively planned for February 2020. 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. Learn to manage the complex details that keep your trees alive, including site evaluation, excavation analysis, and creating optimum soil structure. Other topics include planting at the proper height, planting at the proper depth, and probing containers for roots to judge the depth of the root flare. Hands-on demonstrations will be done, weather permitting.
