Event description

Description


Not all trees are created equal…especially when it comes to challenging urban conditions – small spaces with close proximity to buildings and less-than-perfect soils. But with years of study and practical experience, landscape designer, lecturer and arborist Laura Forlin will share with us the best performing trees for small urban landscapes. She will highlight both deciduous and evergreen species that do well in our Bay Area climate and that are generally problem-free.
