FREE Urban Forestry Webinar: Approaches to Dealing With Circling Roots on Container-Grown Trees – A Prelude to the WAA Fall Seminar

September 20, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 12:30 pm

Container-grown trees are increasingly popular in a range of urban forestry and landscape applications. However, arborists and landscapers are often concerned about defects associated with container growing. Dr. Bert Cregg and members of his lab have researched various approaches to dealing with root systems of container-grown trees over the past decade. In this webinar, Dr. Cregg will highlight key findings from his group’s research and discuss practical implications for tree planters.

Join us for this FREE live webinar that is a prelude to the WAA Fall Seminar which ties into Dr. Cregg’s talk called “Quit Going in Circles: Managing Roots of Container-Grown Trees.”
