Little Seeds to Streetside Giants, How to Care for Your Street and Yard Trees


with Jacob DiGirolamo, Five Town CSD Adult & Community Education

Do you have a yard full of mature trees, or do you often appreciate places with large trees? It should come as no surprise that someone's careful planning and work has gone into curating and maintaining these special places, often started generations ago. In this course we will explore the process of selecting and planning out our landscapes for trees, looking after and shaping young trees, and evaluating older trees for health and structural issues. It is because of the dedication of a few people many years ago that our streets and yards are full of towering giants today, with a little sweat and patience, we can assure that it will be that way for the next generations.
