Establishing Trees in Urban Environments

Learn the latest and greatest: best practices for tree planting

Research in recent years has provided new insights into what trees need and how best to ensure their survival through sound planting practices. Arborists and landscapers need to pay special attention on urban sites, in order to enable trees to thrive in those difficult growing conditions. Learn the basics, and then watch the practice in an outdoor planting demonstration. Continuing education credits have been requested.

The Professional Development Series is funded in part by a grant from

the USDA Forest Service, Urban and Community Forestry Program and

the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, Bureau of Forestry.
