Master Gardener Judy Hale will lead this Study Group session.  For years, standard advice for planting trees and other woody perennials was to: amend the soil with organic material, don’t disturb the root ball, and add fertilizer to encourage root growth.  But how does this approach affect long term root establishment and tree survival? We’ll discuss what the latest research tells us about how to plant trees to improve chances of successful establishment in the landscape.  

*Qualifies for two hours of education/recertification credit. 

Registration is required for first time attendees.
