Session Description:

Protecting and maximizing the asset value and beneficial functions of our park tree canopies and building urban forest resiliency into the future begins long before proper tree installation, and even before developing a quality planting plan and design.  Because trees are not widgets and one size never fits all, learn how to work with local and regional nursery growers to produce higher quality tree stock designed to meet your specific needs. Succeed beyond the ribbon-cutting ceremony and watch your investment in green infrastructure not just grow, but thrive, with strategic tree species selection and stock management practices.
