2018 Tree Symposium
Fall is when trees come into their glory. Join us for a multi-faceted look at these critically important members of our ecosystem.
- To lead off, Professor Tom Ombrello reveals the role of trees in history, as he tells us about the Historic Tree grove on the campus at Union County College.
- Willowwood’s Superintendent of Horticulture John Beirne will convince you that Magnolias should be your favorite tree.
- After lunch, Dr. Neil Hendrickson will offer timely information on the pests and diseases threatening our landscapes, giving us information to deal with these challenges to become effective stewards of the land.
- Last but not least, author William Bryant Logan’s lecture, The Thousand Year Wood: Our Enduring Reliance on Trees, is about the long and intimate relationship between people and trees.
Bring a brown bag lunch, we’ll provide the drinks.
This program is eligible for 4.5 Rutgers Master Gardener CEU’s.
Walk ins are welcome, we still have some room for you!
