May 27, 2022 | Noon-4 p.m. | Stevens Point, Wis.
20 Minutes in the Life or Death of a Tree is a half-day workshop that focuses on tree planting and tree care. The workshop includes an introduction to tree biology, a hands-on examination of tree root systems, the application of this knowledge to ensure proper planting, demonstrate proper tree planting techniques, and discuss post-planting tree care.
Through a combination of presentations, root examinations, and tree plantings this workshop will cover:
- Overview of tree root biology and formation and its impact on planting success
- Tree planting based on the packaging type (bare-root, container-grown)
- Tree care the first year after planting
A tentative itinerary is available HERE.
This workshop is geared towards landowners. However, it is open to all interested participants.
