Wondering what trees are best for your yard? The Lynchburg Tree Stewards are offering a Homeowners Tree Workshop in conjunction with the Lynchburg Parks & Recreation Department. Sarah Hagan, Lynchburg’s Urban Forester, will discuss the best strategies for planting and maintaining trees in your yard that are best suited for our area.
The workshop will include what native trees are best for wildlife; what trees are best for shading your home and reducing electric bills; what trees are best for providing fruit and nuts; and how trees help prevent storm water runoff. The workshop will conclude with a tree planting demonstration. Meet near the Aviary on Grove Street and bring a mask. The workshop is free but registration is required.
