Bringing Nature Home: Trees
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Trees
Presented by Courtney Blashka, Director of Conservation and Community Forestry, Holden Forests and Gardens


Ohio was 95% forested before European settlement, but today it is only 31% forested. Restoring tree canopy is essential to sequester carbon to address the climate emergency. And trees are among the first flowering plants to attract insects and birds in the spring! Learn about the native trees necessary to restore a healthy canopy in our urban environment and local parks.

@ 2:15 pm: Meet The Heights Tree People, who can help you select and plant a (free!) tree in your own yard this spring.

This talk is part of a series of talks on native plants and sustainable gardening leading up to Ohio’s first ever Native Plant Month in April hosted by Friends of Lower Lake and Doan Brook Watershed Partnership.
