ARBORICULTURE - FOR THE HOME GARDENER
Ken Hutz, Certified Arborist for the Barton Arboretum and Nature Preserve of Medford Leas shared how trees and shrubs can beautify the garden and provide seasonal interest while buffering noise pollution. Trees and plants can provide shade, can prevent erosion, as well as frame views and screen eyesores in the landscape. Attractive trees and well designed gardens can increase property value. Ken discussed the benefits of maintaining healthy and well pruned trees and shrubs as well as fertilization, disease treatments and IPM-based treatments for the garden.
