Where tree seedlings come from...


Northern Virginia Urban Forestry Quarterly Roundtable
Nuts and Bolts of Urban Forestry
Thursday, May 23, 2013   9:30 – 2PM
Arlington County Department of Parks and Natural Resources
2700 S Taylor Street, Arlington, VA 22206

This is the story of how a seed at a production nursery becomes a tree in the landscape; how the industrialization of the process has ignored the biology of the trees to the detriment of trees and the consumers; and some of the things we are doing to improve.

FREE – ($10 if you want lunch provided)  If you’ve ever wondered why the trees we plant have so many problems, this will help answer.  Great opportunity to meet other jurisdictions Tree Stewards and forestry staff.   Register on line at:
