Jerry Turney is back for his second Tree ID class of the Fall. He has a different set of 20 trees to cover this Saturday. Do you know the trees of Southern California? We have one of the most diverse urban forests in the USA.
This class will teach you about different trees on each of three Saturdays for a total of 60 trees. Each two hour lecture will cover 15-20 tree species followed by a walk in the Arboretum to see the trees that were covered during the lecture.
Dr. Jerrold Turney, plant pathologist and certified arborist, will teach you to identify trees, their growth habit, their native country, how they should be cared for, any common diseases or insect pests that attack them, and the best place in your garden to plant them.
