Urban Forestry Workshops

UW-Extension and the WI Department of Natural Resources brings you several tree planting workshops happening this fall. Community public works, park employees and others should be very excited about these informative workshops. The workshops consist of classroom instruction and outdoor demonstrations on planting techniques, tree species, post-plant maintenance and treatment, nursery stock inspection and more!
