MCTG, Trees Forever and Three Pines Petersburg are teaming up to host a workshop on Growing Healthy Trees and Shrubs on October 24th at Three Pines Petersburg.  10:00 AM to Noon. 

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, will give an informative presentation about what to plant, where to plant, how to plant, and how to care for your trees. The talk will focus on 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 tree and shrub planting experience.

This event is free and open to the public!
