Henrico Extension’s ‘Tree Smarts’ seminar series concludes April 19-21

The Henrico County Extension Office and Henrico County Master Gardeners will offer the final installment of the “Tree Smarts” seminar series April 19-21 with a program on mature trees. The seminar is scheduled for 7-8:30 p.m. each night at the following locations (each session will feature the same information): Tuesday, April 19, Dorey Recreation Center, 7200 Dorey Park Drive; Wednesday, April 20, Deep Run Recreation Center, 9910 Ridgefield Parkway; and Thursday, April 21, Belmont Recreation Center, 1600 Hilliard Road.

“Caring for an Older Tree” will highlight the importance of maintaining a stable environment around mature trees to ensure their health. Older trees typically do not respond well to stresses, have greater demands on their energy supply than younger trees and need balance with their surroundings to remain healthy, noted County Agent Karen Carter.

The Tree Smarts seminar series is designed to increase understanding of trees, the role they play in the community’s landscape and how homeowners and others can improve the way they care for them. The sessions are free and open to the public.

Participants can pre-register by calling Henrico Extension at 501-5160. Additional information is available online at http://www.co.henrico.va.us/extension
