Join Travis County Master Gardener and ISA Certified Arborist Jerry Naiser to learn all about how to do right by your trees.

Hear how to correctly plant a tree to give it a strong start and secure location for its lifespan. Finally, learn how to care for and prune your tree for long-term health and during times of stress such as construction or drought.

This seminar is free, open to the public and requires no reservations. It is presented by the Travis County Master Gardeners Association, a volunteer arm of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service in Travis County. Call the Travis County Master Gardener's help desk at (512) 854-9600 with questions.
