Tree Planting: How To Do It Right

Urban forests are in decline in spite of major efforts to plant trees. Part of the decline is due to poor health and poor planting methods for new trees. We will explore better methods of restoring urban forests, including plant selection, planting methods, and ways to improve survival. We will begin with a discussion of the problems with current tree selection, planting, and maintenance and then move on to ideas for improving the health and longevity of planted trees. The emphasis will be on tree planting not only in urban areas but on farms, in yards, and other places. We will use the principles that guide forest tree planting programs. There will be ample opportunities for questions.

This is a Zoom webinar. There will be ample opportunity for participants to post questions.

What Is a Native Tree, Anyway?

People are increasingly interested in native trees. Trees native to a given location are generally expected to grow better and live longer in their native range. The range suitable for a given tree species is not constant, and tree ranges are constantly changing. In the current climate crisis, scientists predict that the current range of many tree species will change very rapidly. In this webinar, we will discuss the history of tree ranges since the last glaciation, what determines the range and extent of a species, and what tree ranges might look like in the future. The presentation will be based on the best science available, but without the use of technical terminology.

This is a Zoom webinar. There will be ample opportunity for participants to post questions.
