Arborist is Edmonds Floretum Garden Club guest during Oct. 12 workshop
Edmonds Floretum Garden Club will be holding the first of this year's series of Saturday Workshops from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 12.
Anna Heckman, Washington State certified arborist and member of the Edmonds Tree Board, will speak on the topic of "How to Grow and Live with Trees in the City: Minimizing the Hazards and Maximizing Value."
Heckman is passionate about long-term management of the landscape, implementing the best available science into our vegetation management practices, and teaching these practices to the public.
This is an opportunity for people to listen to and talk with someone who is "in the know" about what to consider as property owners regarding the trees we grow.
She will give recommendations for maintenance practices and tree selection that may help minimize problems for owners later on.
The presentation will be in the meeting room of Coldwell Banker Bain at 108 5th Ave. S., Edmonds. All are welcome. Donations are accepted.
