We can’t live without trees. They provide shade, pictorial views, and clean air, and yet we often seem to think of them as expendable or temporary, rather than as the kings of the forest. A correctly placed and cared-for tree should last for generations, adding invaluable green canopy to our dwindling urban forest. During this course we’ll get up-close and personal with dozens of trees—their features, uses, fall color, flowers, fruits, care, and pruning. You’re encouraged to bring samples for identification and care recommendations.
