Event Description

As urban gardens shrink in size, so does the room for planting a tall oak or a spreading blackgum. But on most properties there is usually space for a small tree or several of them. In choosing a small tree, homeowners and landscapers gravitate toward dogwoods and redbuds. Other species are neither well known nor readily available. This one-hour walk through an urban landscape highlights about 10 to 15 plants in the large shrub/small tree category, all native to eastern North America. We will talk about growth habits, proper placement, pruning needs and availability.
