Join Austin’s City Arborist, Michael Embesi, to learn about the benefits of trees, our urban forest, and why trees are an essential part of our lives.  Learn to select appropriate  trees for your Central Texas landscape, those that are appropriate for our native soils and tough climate.  Understand how to select and care for the right tree, in the proper location, considering size, longevity, and biological needs.  Finally, hear about your opportunities within multiple community programs, including grant opportunities, which promote the urban forest.  

This seminar is free and open to the public.  It is presented by the Travis County Master Gardeners, a volunteer arm of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service in Travis County.Have gardening questions?  Call the Travis County Master Gardener's help desk at (512) 854-9600.
