Tree Health Workshop for Landowners

The Grand River Conservation Authority’s Managing Trees on your Property workshop will answer questions landowners have about trees and help them to develop skills and strategies to maintain and improve their trees.

The free day-long event about all aspects of tree management for landowners will take place on Saturday, March 5, 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the GRCA head office, 400 Clyde Rd., Cambridge.
GRCA forestry staff, along with experts from the Ministry of Natural Resources, Ontario Invasive Plant Council and Pollination Guelph will speak about topics ranging from broad forest health issues to impacts on individual trees. Local tree professionals and other agencies will also exhibit products and services.
“Whether you have a large woodlot or only a few trees, you can learn as much as possible about how to help your trees and address threats like the emerald ash borer,” says Karen Buschert, conservation outreach specialist with the GRCA. “This workshop will allow participants to network with staff and like-minded landowners to solve their tree problems.”
Topics include planting, pruning, common tree diseases, invasive species, hazard trees, forest health, pollinators, management plans and grant opportunities for rural landowners.
Participation is free and lunch is included. Please preregister by contacting Karen Buschert at the Grand River Conservation Authority at ruralwater@grandriver.ca or 519-621-2763, ext. 2305.
