Speakers: Dr. Nina Bassuk (Cornell University) will be introduced by Dr. Hallie Dozier (Louisiana State University, TREE Fund Trustee and Research and Education Committee Chair)
Droughts, flooding, extreme temperatures - today's variable weather patterns can leave urban foresters with soils that are too wet or too dry, making it more challenging than ever to grow strong, healthy trees. What can you do to increase your odds for success? Join us for Strategies for Successful Urban Tree Growth in Wet and Dry Sites, a FREE TREE Fund sponsored webinar featuring Dr. Nina Bassuk of Cornell University. Learn the secrets of science-based soil modification strategies to increase a tree's ability to access water. Discover plant selection resources and expand your palette of plant choices for challenging conditions.
Dr. Hallie Dozier introduced Dr. Bassuk and was on hand to answer questions about the TREE Fund and its research grant programs.
Dr. Bassuk has received multiple Hyland R. Johns grants and John Z. Duling grants from the TREE Fund for research on topics such as techniques to remediate compacted
soil and ground penetrating radar's role in saving tree roots during urban expansion.
