The Garden Club of Essex Fells is sponsoring an event for all residents to attend at the Essex Fells School Auditorium on Saturday, February 28, 2015 at 11:00 am.
Trees: Earths greatest natural resource. Trees produce oxygen without which our living planet cannot exist, they also reduce air pollution. Trees clean the soil and conserve energy, and with proper planting, pruning and care, help prevent soil erosion and increase property values. Essex Fells has a beautiful assortment of mature trees that make our town a very special place, but with those trees comes the responsibility of maintenance. Our speaker for the event will be Stacie Phelps, Arborist from SavATree. Stacie grew up in the Adirondack Mountains and is a graduate of SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (Conservation Biology, with a focus in ecology and invasive species management). Stacie’s presentation will focus on:
1 – The criteria to look for when choosing a professional tree/shrub or lawn care service, and proper practices.
2 – Seasonal care of trees, shrubs and turf with special emphasis on pruning, cabling/bracing, and management.
3 – Common landscape plants and the issues that accompany them.
Join your fellow residents at the Essex Fells School for a discussion and have your questions answered on these very important topics. Guests welcome and refreshments will be served.
