GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Greenwich Tree Conservancy is sponsoring a series of free discussions addressing best practices for planting and maintaining trees beginning Saturday, April 2.
The first discussion will be “Calling All Tree Owners” and will be held from 9:30 to 11 a.m., at Sam Bridge Nursery, 437 North St., Greenwich.
Many homeowners are confused or misinformed concerning tree maintenance, and rely on advisors who may also have limited knowledge about it.
At the first discussion, there will be a panel that includes John Conte of Conte & Conte, Brian Johnson of Hawthorne Bros., Steve Johnson of San Bridge Nursery and the Moderator, Mark Greenwald of Maher and Greenwald Landscaping.
The panel will cover many areas including working with design and industry professionals; tree protection during construction; natives vs. cultivars; tree selection for storms and power lines; and mulching, feeding, irrigation and more.
