Deciduous trees are typically the most long-lasting plants in a landscape and, when mature, can be the most valuable structures on the property.

They provide framework to your garden and many species contribute significant habitat for wildlife. Deciduous trees offer essential shade in the landscape and can even lower your energy bill if placed correctly. This course will cover the identification and landscape uses of deciduous trees found in this region.

This is a six-session course.
