Tree Bondage: and solutions with Robert Kourik
At the Seed Bank
Thursday 6/1/2016 6:30pm-8:00pm
I'll show dozens of misshaped, abused and tortured trees, from mangled roots, to poorly-tended trunks and grossly manipulated canopies. I will show photographs of  trees in bondage and discuss healthy alternatives. (Or, whether or not it should be reduced to firewood!) Be prepared to be shocked as well as educated.
 The audience will:
See how trees can be mismanaged
Learn how to "repair" damaged trees
Learn how to avoid the hurtful aspects of the damaged trees shown
See examples of the correct way to plant, irrigate, compost, fertilize, mulch and prune trees
