Deciduous trees are typically the longest-lasting plants in a landscape and, when mature, can be the most valuable structures on a property. They provide framework to your garden and contribute as a significant habitat for wildlife. Deciduous trees offer essential shade in the landscape and can even lower your energy bill if placed correctly. This course covers the identification and landscape uses of deciduous trees found in this region.
