Growing Healthy Trees & Shrubs Workshop

May 15, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

MCTG, Trees Forever, Starhill Arboretum and Three Pines Petersburg are teaming up to host a workshop on Growing Healthy Trees and Shrubs on May 15th at Three Pines Petersburg.  1:00PM to 3:00PM. 

Want to add trees and shrubs to your landscape, but don’t know quite where to start? Got questions about what kind of trees would be best for your property? In partnership with Menard County Trails & Greenways, Debbie Fluegel with Trees Forever and Guy Sternberg with Starhill Arboretum will share tips and tricks about what to plant, where to plant, how to plant, and how to care for your trees and shrubs. The talk will focus on native trees  and shrubs in the community and those that are beneficial to pollinators and other wildlife. After the presentation, attendees will get some hands-on experience planting trees and shrubs that are wrapped in burlap.

This event is free and open to the public!
